All incidents in the workplace must be recorded in an Accident Book at the site, so that, in the event of someone looking to find out more about what happened, all the information about how the incident was handled can be seen at a glance. This includes all of the workplaces you might find in Cheltenham and the rest of Gloucestershire – so, if you’ve been injured at work, you can make an accident at work claim in Cheltenham for compensation for your injury, and you may be able to use information about your accident in the site’s Accident Book.
