Health and safety accident reporting

Covid-19: We are currently under national restrictions. Please stay at home to control the virus, protect the NHS and save lives.

The Government has published its roadmap out of the current lockdown which is available at www.charnwood.gov.uk/roadmap.

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.
