Health and safety accident reporting

The reporting of injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences regulations requires the reporting of work-related accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences.

It applies to all work activities, but not to all incidents. You will need to report:

  • The death of any person (workers or non-workers)
  • Specified injuries
  • Accidents resulting in seven days off work (after the date of the accident, reported within 15 days)
  • Diseases
  • Dangerous occurrences
  • When a member of the public is taken to hospital
  • Gas incidents

Reporting certain accidents and cases of ill health arising out of work activities and business undertakings is a legal requirement. If you are an employer, self-employed or in control of work premises you will have duties under the Regulations.
