New incident reporting arrangements introduced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have come into operation with effect from Monday 12th September.
Only fatal and major injuries and incidents will be able to be reported by phone to the HSE, with all other work-related injuries and incidents reportable under RIDDOR (the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995) to be reported via one of a suite of seven online forms available on HSE's website.
Trevor Carlile, HSE's Director of Strategy, said:
"This should not be a significant change for many, as more than half of reportable injuries are already notified to HSE through the website. The new forms are intuitive and quick and easy to complete. The most important thing is that there will still be somebody at the end of the phone to assist those who are reporting a traumatic event that has resulted in a death or major injury.”
