Accident Reporting

  • Each site uses an N5 Accident Book for recording all accidents. You will find the book with the Site Agent the Site Supervisor.

    If you are injured at work, you must report the accident to your employer as soon as you can. The report must be entered in the Accident Book. Occurrence of certain diseases or dangerous occurrences must also be recorded. See site reference documentation (Accident Reporting)

    The prompt reporting of an accident or incident may well result in saving a life.

    Your co-operation is therefore very important. If there is an accident / incident at your work place, help by:-

    • Making sure that, where necessary, first aid assistance is called immediately.

    • Seeing that it is reported without delay to your supervisor, even when no person has been injured or plant damaged.

    • Ensuring, in the case of serious personal injury, that the accident site is left undisturbed until clearance is given by your supervisor.

    • Ensuring that any items which may assist in the accident investigation (e.g. damaged slings, broken abrasive wheels) are retained and passed to your supervisor.

    Minor accidents can lead to death, as one case of treading on a nail did. This occurred because the person suffered from diabetes and did not report it. By the time he went to hospital the problem was so serious that they had to amputate his leg. Whilst undergoing the operation he died.

    Accident investigations will be held to review over 3 day accidents, major injuries and dangerous occurrences with the intention of helping to prevent similar occurrences.
