Accident, Incident Reporting and Investigation

Our consultants can help you with accident or incident reports

Reporting all accidents, incidents, or near misses is essential to ensuring that they are investigated. By investigating these events you’ll ensure that all causes are identified. Once these are identified corrective and preventative measures can be implemented to reduce the risk of a recurrence.

Some of your accidents or incidents may require reporting under RIDDOR to the health and safety executive. Our RIDDOR report services can help you do this.

How we can help you with your accident or incident reporting

Reporting accidents or incidents at work requires a careful, structured approach. This ensures that key information is captured which will be used as part of any investigation.

Our consultants will help you set up new, effective systems to record all accidents, incidents or near-misses that might occur in your organisation. We’ll also train key staff members in these systems to ensure the correct level of competence.

Do I need to report every accident or incident that happens in the workplace?

Yes. The reporting process highlights that something has gone wrong. Putting the right measures in place reduces the risk of accidents or incidents occurring, but more importantly the severity of an accident occurring can be reduced also. Near-miss reporting is a good example of effective reporting as harm has not yet occurred, however, good effective controls can be introduced.

Therefore, you should report and investigate ALL accidents in the workplace, however minor.

Effective accident and incident reporting makes your workplace safer. Let our health and safety consultants help.
