Suffered an Accident at the Workplace?
It is every employer’s duty to protect their employees and this includes a legal obligation to report serious accidents and to provide sick pay should it be owed.
Health and Safety at Work
When an accident has taken place in the workplace, your employer may have a duty to report it to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) if it is serious enough. This includes major instances such as broken bones, any injury that prevents the employee from working for three days or more, disease and death. However, in cases of fatal or extremely serious accidents, employers also have a duty to make a report to the Incident Contact Centre.
