Accident and Incident Reporting

The first priority is to treat any injured persons. Either contact a trained first aider (Section 2, Annex 1) or alert University Security Services on ext. 32222 so they can call an ambulance.

In the event of an accident, an incident or a near miss there is a legal requirement to document and report the matter. As soon as is practicably possible a report must be made either by the injured party or by the School Health and Safety Coordinator or by another member of staff.

The following procedure applies to all accidents, incidents or near misses on University property involving staff on University business (whether on or off campus), students and visitors on University property.


NB: There is a requirement that the School investigates accidents and incidents in order to minimise the risk of further occurrences. All reported accidents and incidents are formally brought to the School Health and Safety Committee for discussion. A copy of all recorded online accidents and incidents are automatically forwarded to Health and Safety Services.

Further information and guidance on Accident and Incident Reporting, RIDDOR reportable accidents, incidents and diseases is available on the Accident Report Form or from the Health and Safety Services website: http://wsh.leeds.ac.uk/info/210/accidents/129/accidents.
