Accidents (at work)

Also known as:- Health & Safety at Work - investigation

Service Description: Employers have a duty to report certain dangerous occurrences and accidents at work to the council, who will then investigate any incidents. The outcome of these enquiries usually involves the giving of advice to the employer. If a blatant breach of requirements is identified as the main reason for an accident happening, then formal action will be taken.

Accidents in offices, shops, hotels and catering, and leisure activities are covered by Environmental Health Officers (from the IOW Council); Inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive (see link below) cover factories, farms and building sites.
