A Health and Safety Adviser will review each form and will usually follow up with the injured person or their manager, to confirm the circumstances.
Where an investigation is required the form is forwarded to the responsible manager along with the Health and Safety Incident Investigation Form. Serious incidents will be investigated by Health and Safety.
The form may be forwarded to others who can provide support or need to know for investigation purposes. For example:
- Occupational Health
- Insurance and Risk Manager
- Student Services, including Wellbeing
The information is also recorded on our database, so that we can analyse and report on trends and for incident prevention purposes. Please see the data protection statement below.
