Accident Prevention, Investigation and Reporting

Yes accidents happen we all know that but as an employer you have a duty under The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the health, safety and welfare at work of all your employees and visitors.


We at CSATS can help you to put into place safe systems of work and provide advice to help minimise the likelihood of an accident happening as prevention is a far better option than having to sort out the mess afterwards.

There are some basic preventative measures that CSATS can install and run on your behalf or, if you require, link in with systems you already have and with already appointed employee/s.


All accidents or near hits must be recorded in a proper manner and kept on record.

These records are best done straight away.


If an accident does occur CSATS can either carry out or assist in the carrying out of an Accident Investigation with the aim of finding out what went wrong, why it went wrong and formulating new control measures to prevent any reoccurrence of the accident.

It is imperative that statements from the injured party and any witnesses must be done straight away or very quickly after the event so that pertinent details are not lost or altered within our memories. It is also imperative that the scene of the accident is not disturbed until fully recorded.

Once all the facts have been collated a report is written which is presented back to you for you to digest and, if required, action any deficiencies to hopefully prevent reoccurrence of the accident. It could also show that you did nothing wrong and your safety systems are working correctly.


We are able to advise you of your legal duties on reporting injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences should one happen. We can, on your behalf, complete the report with RIDDOR for you.
