This revised book now includes a new set of guidance notes that gives guidance on the new CDM 2007 regulations. This Accident Book is set out to record the information required for the reporting of injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences carried out under the Social Security (Claims and Payments) Regulations 1979; and the Safety at Work Act 1974; and the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995. Social Security legislation specifically requires you to keep an accident book (such as this one) readily available, into which details must be entered of every accident causing personal injury to an employee. The employee may complete the book or have someone else make an entry on their behalf.
Please note that the law changed on 6 April 2012. If a worker sustains an occupational injury resulting from an accident, their injury should be reported if they are incapacitated for more than seven days. There is no longer a requirement to report occupational injuries that result in more than three days of incapacitation, but you must still keep a record of such injuries.
