Injuries

Depending on the seriousness of any injury sustained, there may be a need to report the incident to the Health and Safety Executive. This can be done by a ”responsible person” contacting the HSE direct for a Form 2508 within 7 days of the accident taking place. Alternatively, the form can be completed on-line at the Health and Safety Executive web site www.hse.gov.uk. These are called “Notifiable Events”.
