Accident & Malpractice Investigation

In addition to the duties imposed on employers by The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (1995) RIDDOR, it is advisable to investigate all accidents/incidents thoroughly using the appropriate techniques to establish liability where criminal or civil proceedings may subsequently be brought against the employer.

Our consultants are fully trained in accident investigation techniques to provide the following service:

  • Visit the scene and take photographs (and/or video footage) and document facts and evidence regarding the accident, dangerous occurrence or disease.
  • Interview the witnesses and record names, addresses and telephone numbers so that a statement can be obtained from them at a later date.
  • Inform the appropriate enforcing authorities of the accident using the correct protocol depending on the nature of the incident.
  • Produce a full report giving recommendations.
  • Ensure the Company Accident Form BI 510 is completed for every accident/illness.

Where the company has been served with an HSE improvement or prohibition notice for non-compliance issues or, where safe systems of work have not been adhered to, it is advisable to carry out an independent investigation in order to recommend control measures for implementation to resolve the situation.
