Health and safety accident reporting

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at www.charnwood.gov.uk/restrictions.

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.
