Stevenage Accident at Work

Reporting your Stevenage accident at work

The single most important thing you can do is report your accident to your employer as soon as possible and let them assist you in creating an accurate record of the incident in their accident book. The accident book entry you create in the immediate aftermath of your accident will form a vital part of your evidence should you later decide to pursue a compensation claim against your employer. You should therefore ensure that your entry it includes details such as the date, time and location of your accident, the nature of the injuries you have sustained and the names of any witnesses to your accident.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requires your employer to report certain accidents at work under the Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR). Depending on the nature of your Stevenage accident at work, your employer must contact the HSE if you are absent from work for three days or more as a result of your injury.
