These regulations place a legal duty on:
- Self-employed people
- People in control of premises.
An employer must report work-related deaths, major injuries or over-seven day injuries, work related diseases, and dangerous occurrences. The information enables the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities to identify where and how risks arise, and to investigate serious accidents. For most businesses, a reportable accident, dangerous occurrence, or case of disease is a comparatively rare event. However, if it does happen, you must let them know. ETR can assist with this procedure plus all the paperwork that goes with it.
Recording and analysing all incidents, including near misses, will help you to become proactive in the prevention of accidents. A reactive system can be very costly and sometimes catastrophic.
