As an organisation that provides health and safety software, information and services to business, Croner approves of the government's intention to scrap the reporting of work-related injuries resulting in over three day absence. Increasing the threshold to over seven days is a good idea since the data collected by the Health and Safety Executive is currently serving no useful purpose from an enforcement point of view. The over seven-day rule would also become aligned with the fit note scheme operated by GPs, which came into operation in April 2010. However, just because there are now a few extra days to make the report, employers or responsible persons should not become complacent in their duties to deal with accidents. They should continue to be investigated quickly, looking into how and why they occurred and what remedial action needs to be taken to prevent it happening again. Croner's accident and disease reporting tool can help businesses in the reporting and management of incidents and accidents, dangerous occurrences, diseases and near misses in the workplace. By guiding users through a series of questions, it will help them identify what is reportable under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR). For those incidents that are reportable, the details will be captured in a report in the official F2508/A format that may be e-mailed directly to the Incident Contact Centre or appropriate enforcing authority. For more information call 0800 634 1700.
