Reporting an accident at your workplace
Legally employers, self-employed people and those in control of premises must report certain types of accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences to their enforcing authority. This could be to either us or the Health and Safety Executive (HSENI).
All accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences can be reported to the HSENI, regardless of whether or not they are the enforcing authority. They will then forward the relevant forms to us if it is our responsibility to enforce the business.
The following must be reported:
death or major injury
over 3-day injury to employees/self-employed people
a member of the public directly seeking medical attention
disease – notification from a doctor
You can use the online reporting forms available from the Health and Safety Executive NI website
