REPORTING OF INJURIES, DISEASES AND DANGEROUS OCCURENCES REGULATIONS

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 came into force on 1st April 1996. Employers, self-employed or persons in control of work premises have duties under the regulations. They are required to report work-related accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences to the local Environmental Health Authority or the Health and Safety Executive.

A DEATH OR MAJOR INJURY.
If an employee, or self-employed person is killed or suffers a major injury (including the results of physical violence) or a member of the public is killed or taken to hospital it is the duty of the person in control of the premises to :-
Notify the enforcing authority immediately. They will ask for brief details concerning the injured person, the accident and your business.

MAJOR INJURIES INCLUDE-
Amputation, loss of sight, fractures to anywhere except fingers, thumbs or toes, electrical shock or burns leading to unconsciousness.

OVER SEVEN DAY INJURY.
If, as a result of an accident connected with work (including an act of Physical Violence), an employee or self-employed person suffers an injury which means they cannot do normal work for more than seven days, a completed accident report form must be sent to the enforcing authority within fifteen days.

DISEASE
If there is notification by a doctor that an employee is suffering from a reportable work-related disease, then a disease report must be completed and sent to the enforcing authority. If unsure, you can ring the HSE to check whether a disease is reportable.

DANGEROUS OCCURRENCE
If there is an incident which does not result in a reportable injury but which could have done, then it may be a dangerous occurrence, examples of which are , electrical short circuit or overload resulting in fire or explosion, collapse, overturning or failure of load bearing parts of lifts and lifting equipment, plant or equipment coming into contact with power lines.
