What to do if you or a colleague has had an accident at work
Firstly, get medical help if you need it. For immediate cuts and gashes, call on the nominated safety officer in your company, who will probably be the safety officer. If you witnessed serious injuries to a colleague, then call an ambulance immediately.
Report the incident to those responsible, either the safety officer or your immediate superior. The accident should be recorded in the company’s accident book, and serious accidents and fatalities must be reported to the Health and Safety Executive.
If equipment or plant is unsafe, for example if there are live electrical circuits or there is leaking gas, don’t touch it, but call the necessary technicians to get it made safe.
Take notes and photographs and note down who was around who witnessed the accident.
Once home, or discharged from hospital, see your GP for an assessment, to get your injuries recorded on your personal medical record in case you need further treatment in the future.
