A basic guide to the legal requirement in health and safety at work legislation to report workplace injuries and dangerous occurrences

Accident and Incident reporting is part of an employer’s responsibility; they are required to report specific health and safety incidents to the enforcing authorities.

The enforcing authorities use the reports to produce statistical information which allows them to target areas of high risk, produce guidance materials and develop safety campaigns (e.g. falls from height). Reports are also used as a tool to identify poor performance by employers and indicate where investigation or intervention is necessary to ensure the maintenance of good health and safety standards.
