Accident/incident reporting policy

Accident/incident reporting policy

Apart from being a legal requirement, proper accident investigation can help prevent further occurrences. Our sample policy makes staff aware of what you expect from them.

Accident reporting

Unfortunately, accidents are a fact of life and at some point your business is likely to be faced with one, so it’s important to have the correct paperwork in place. Our Accident/Incident Reporting Policy helps you to set out a clear procedure on how and when accidents should be reported.

Creating a policy

Our policy begins with a general statement which states that all accidents/incidents are to be reported. The second section briefly covers the legislation that governs accident reporting to the authorities, whilst the third describes the process that employees should adopt. This is to ensure that any accidents which need to be reported to the authorities are done so as soon as possible. The fourth section, on off-site accidents, makes it clear that accidents should also be reported to host employers. The last two sections concentrate on employee duties and accident investigation.
