Accidents, Incidents and Near Misses

The forms on this page should be used to report accidents and incidents in the work place.  It is as important to report near misses and dangerous occurrences as it is an actual accident or incident.  By reporting near misses and dangerous occurrences, these can be investigated and dealt with to prevent future accidents and incidents.

Form HS1(a) below should be used to report an accident, violent incident or fire alert.
Form HS1 (b) below should be used to report a near miss or a dangerous occurrence.
