Accident and incident reporting
Accident and Incident Reporting has changed. From 26 May 2015, all accidents and incidents must be reported directly onto a new web-based incident database.
The old SO2 Incident Report Form is now obsolete and should be withdrawn from use. All employees (or someone on their behalf) can report accidents and incidents without the need to log in to the system. All Heads and Business Managers have been provided with their personal logon for the new database so that they can process accident and incidents reports. Employees without PC/internet access may use a paper based ‘SO2 Incident Notification Form’ to initiate the reporting process.
Serious incidents must still be reported by telephone to the Corporate Health & Safety Team but there is no longer a need to send copies of forms through to the Corporate Health & Safety Team as they will receive automatic notification of any incidents reported. The new database will be maintained by the Health & Safety Team who will also provide advice and assistance as required.
