Reporting an Accident
Reporting an accident is a legal requirement. Accidents should be reported promptly by the person(s) whose responsibility it is to report accidents to the EA, e.g. School Principal, Line Manager or Premises Manager. You should only state the facts and all relevant information about the accident, including events leading up to the accident, do not make assumptions or offer opinions. Accidents must not be logged by the injured party.
The new Online Accident Reporting System will replace the existing paper-based format and will become fully operational from the 1 November 2022.
- Before logging an accident report you must register as a user using your email address and complete all required fields on the registration page.
- Login to complete and submit an accident report form.
