Report an accident
Health and safety enforcement is split between the council and
the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Employers have a duty to
types of injury in their workplace under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and
Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR).
Only ‘responsible persons’ including employers, the
self-employed and people in control of work premises should submit
reports under RIDDOR.
All incidents can be reported online but a phone service is also
provided for reporting fatal and specified injuries
only - phone the HSE’s Incident Contact Centre on
0845 300 9923 (opening hours Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm).
Reporting out of hours
The HSE and local authority enforcement officers are not an
emergency service. If you need to report a very
serious or dangerous incident such as a work-related death,
phone HSE on 0151 922 9235 or Medway Council on 01634 30 44
