Accident Reporting Training

Accident Reporting Training

When it comes to safety in the workplace, employers have a duty of care to keep up with the law and provide employees with a safe environment. Accidents do happen, however. If and when they do, it’s essential that you report them to the relevant authorities in the proper way. If you’re the designated ‘responsible person’, manager, owner, or team leader in a business, this course can guide you through the reporting process and explain how to keep records of accident investigations.

What you will learn

The statutory obligation for businesses to report accidents is laid out in the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013, and this course will explain what a RIDDOR report entails. You’ll quickly understand why it’s so important to report workplace accidents, before you dive into the details of keeping an accident book and completing a RIDDOR report correctly. As well as gaining an appreciation for where the responsibilities lie for employers and employees, after taking this course you’ll also be able to recognise which records to keep, and when to report incidents.

About this course

Every office has a health and safety enthusiast – it’s the person clutching a clipboard and reminding you for the 3rd time not to overload the power socket. You may roll your eyes at their strictness, but they’re keeping everyone safe from injury and preventing fines landing on your desk. Businesses must have responsible people to report accidents at work when they occur. Aside from keeping employees safe, it’s the law.

Correctly reporting incidents at work is essential for your business. That’s why this Accident Reporting Training is a crucial part of all personnel and workplace compliance training. It will teach you all you need to know about reporting accidents in the workplace, tracking safety progress, and improving working conditions for employees.

Engaging the learner

When it comes to corporate compliance training, there aren’t many topics more important than accident reporting. But we were conscious that it can be a little intimidating, so our initial challenge on this course was to write and record a voiceover script that was clear and easy to follow, but at the same time friendly and conversational. When it came to developing the video segments, we didn’t want the learner to be distracted by busy animation, so we kept things simple.

Piece of mind with testing

Approved by the world’s biggest H&S organization, IOSH, this course can help you comply with accident reporting regulations and improve your health and safety performance.
