Reports to the enforcing authority of all of the above categories, except over-seven-day injuries, must be made immediately by the quickest practicable means and followed up by a written notification within 10 days. Reports of over-seven-day injuries must be sent to the enforcing authority within 15 days.
In addition,records must be kept of all of ‘over-three-day injuries’, which are those where a person who is injured at work is incapacitated for more than three consecutive days. Over-three-day injuries do not, however, have to be reported to the enforcing authority any more.
If you have an accident or incident on site please inform us as soon as possible. We will if required get someone to the site as soon as possible (Geography/timescales permitted) for the serious incidents. We will also be able to offer you advice about when/if the incident should be reported and how to complete the report. If you receive any correspondence from the HSE, please get in contact with us for advice on how to respond.
