Advice on health and safety legislation
Acts and regulations
If an accident occurs in the workplace then a report must be made to the incident contact centre (ICC) via the RIDDOR pages on the HSE website
The accident is picked up from the RIDDOR website by us and passed to one of our environmental health (health and safety) officers who will investigate it.
These regulations expand on the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. They are intended to protect the health and safety of everyone in the workplace and make sure welfare facilities are provided for people at work.
Employers are required to provide employees with adequate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given.
