Accident reporting plays a crucial role in maintaining a safe workplace, as the aim of the practice is to ensure that the accident is not repeated. Under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (2013), employers require “responsible persons” to report accidents, major injuries, dangerous occurrences, and even death in the workplace. Therefore, it is a legal duty to practice accident reporting.
