Accident Reporting Training Course
This online Accident Reporting Training Course provides the essential knowledge for the responsible person within the workplace to report accidents or injuries. It is paramount that the responsible person, who could be an employer, manager, or person in charge of the work premises, has the correct and sufficient knowledge of RIDDOR. Accidents do occur; therefore, you must ensure it is reported correctly and keep appropriate records by law.
Dangerous occurrences, such as near misses, must also be reported. This is useful for the employer to analyse and identify where the risks are and how to amend the situation to ensure that accidents do not occur in future. Due to this, reporting near misses under RIDDOR is just as important as reporting other accidents or injuries that have occurred.
This Accident Reporting course introduces the learner to the regulation and what they must do to ensure they are compliant within their business. As mentioned previously, accidents and injuries do occur. Unfortunately, some of these cases may be more severe than others. This course looks at what employers are required to do when these situations arise within the workplace.
