How Accident Reporting Helps To Identify Common Hazards & Prioritise Risks In The Workplace


Accidents are, unfortunately, a part of life and are an unavoidable risk in some workplaces. All workplace accidents, however minor, should be carefully recorded in an accident log. Many accidents take place as a result of carelessness or negligence on the part of individual employees, but some can be linked back to workplace hazards.

Efficient accident reporting helps improve risk analysis and leads to better health and safety in the workplace. Reports create an audit trail should an accidental injury lead to a compensation claim. Some types of workplace accident – e.g. those involving gas and serious injuries – also need to be reported to the HSE. See our page on [RIDDOR reporting].

Accident reporting tracks health and safety trends over time, allowing you to identify common hazards and prioritise risks – as well as identifying training needs, e.g. heavy lifting training to avoid back injuries. By monitoring your accident reports you can assess the success of your health and safety and risk management initiatives and make intelligent decisions about improving workplace safety.
