Information on Coronavirus

We are currently working with partners to establish whether there are any potential implications for businesses in Melton Borough following the latest government announcement around Plan B. You can find more information on our Business Support Hub.

Reporting an accident in the workplace

Reporting an accident is the responsibility of the business, not the injured person. The business must report the following injuries:

  • Death or major injury to an employee or a self-employed person working on your premises
  • Death or hospitalisation of a member of the public
  • Over seven day injury to an employee or a self-employed person working on your premises
  • Disease suffered by an employee that is related to work activities
  • Dangerous occurrence that does not result in a reportable injury but which clearly could have done

These must be reported to an organisation called RIDDOR by the business within 10 ten days of the incident and followed up with a completed F2508 form. To download the relevant form and see how to submit it, please visit the Health and Safety Executive website below.
