Report an accident at work

The law requires certain work-related injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences to be reported to Health and Safety Executive.

What needs to be reported

  • death or major injuries to an employee or self-employed person working on your premises;
  • death or hospitalisation of a member of the public;
  • disease suffered by an employee that is related to work activities;
  • dangerous occurrence that does not result in a reportable injury but which clearly could have done;
  • over seven day injury (not counting the day on which it happened) to an employee or self-employed person working on your premises. The report must be made within 15 days of the accident.
