H&S Mythbusters

Posted by: Di Wright

Sometimes it is easy to use health and safety as an excuse not to do something. Very often, it is a case of not being bothered, or having the confidence to make a decision, rather than a genuine health and safety concern. Please see the link below for a selection of recent case studies and the HSE's opinion. http://www.hse.gov.uk/myth/myth-busting/index.htm

Changes to Accident Reporting

Posted by: Di Wright

From 6 April 2012 the rules regarding when to report an incident to the Incident Contact Centre are changing.  The over-three-day requirement will change to more than seven days.  So only if the incident results in the employee being absent or incapacitated for more than 7 days will it need to be reported.  Employers have 15 days to make the report on line.  For further information see:  http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg453.pdf
