Reporting Accidents

Reporting Accidents

Your Apprentice’s Assessor will need to be made aware of any accidents which happen within the workplace involving Apprentices.

 

The Reporting of Injuries, Disease and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995 states that “if you are an employer, self employed or anyone in control of work premises, you are required to report work-related accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences.

 

Reporting accidents and ill health at work is a legal requirement. The information enables the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities to identify where and how risks arise and enables them to investigate serious accidents.

 

As an employer, you must report all of the following:

 

• Death or major injury

• An injury which lasts over 7 days. This is applicable when an employee, Apprentice or self-employed person has an accident at work and is unable to work for over 7 days but does not have a serious injury. Please note that the 7 days includes weekends and public holidays.

• A work related disease

• A dangerous occurrence. This is applicable when something happens that does not result in a reportable injury but which clearly could have done.
