Recording Accidents at Work
To comply with regulation, a record of injuries that happen to any person (employee, client, visitor) must be retained.
Safety Representatives are legally entitled to be given/receive information from completed accident forms under the Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations and the Health and Safety (Consultation with Employees) Regulations. All accident form submissions are automatically made available to RHG Health & Safety Officers.
If the injured person ticks the box (and authenticates the consent with his/her signature) then the information contained within the record may also be disclosed to other elected Health & Safety representatives and any other third party requiring the information. Where consent is not obtained, the information will be anonymised to enable disclosure.
