Accident and Incident Reporting: What to Report … and not to Report (and the GDPR Implications)
27/03/2018 - The legislation relating to Accident and Incident Reporting was updated in 2016 in the form of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Reporting of Accidents and Dangerous Occurrences) Regulations, 2016 (S.I No.370 of 2016). There is still some confusion regarding what to report, how to report and record retention requirements, particularly now, with respect to the new GDPR requirements.
03/02/2017 - Accidents are investigated for a variety of reasons however the main purpose of any investigation should be to establish the root cause of the accident/ incident / dangerous occurrence in question and thereafter to identify and implement corrective actions / control measures to prevent reoccurrence.
