Register of health and safety legislation - accidents and emergencies

Our register templates are designed to help you to pull together a list of legislation relevant to your business. This one covers the topic of accidents and emergencies.

How should you use it?

Although there’s no legal requirement to have a legal register you may need this type of document if you are applying for certification under a formal management standard such as OHSAS 18001. You can use it to outline the legislation which applies to you, summarise the implications and explain what you are doing about it.

As our template is pre-filled with data including suggested text which may cover your own arrangements, it’s a relatively quick task to produce your own tailored version.

We’ve included the most common regulations which apply, leaving you to simply add anything a bit more unusual associated with your area of specialism.

It has columns headed:

Legislation”, where we’ve listed Acts and Regulations relating to first aid, accident reporting/investigation and fire emergencies. This includes regional legislation too, meaning you can instantly see what applies in Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as England and Wales.

Summary”, where there’s a brief description of the requirements imposed by legislation on the topic of accidents and emergencies.

Regulator”, which lists whether the HSE, local authority or fire and rescue service is likely to be the relevant enforcing authority.

Aspects of activities affected, where you’re invited to “describe how and why the legislation affects you” and where you should, “refer to internal documents”.

You should check over all of the suggested content, but in particular you’ll need to tailor the last column to reflect the health and safety arrangements you have in place.
