First Aid Casualty Report Form

 

A casualty report  form is a legal document that helps an employer to see what’s happened at an incident  and take action to prevent this from happening again. It also provides a useful record of what happened in case an employee needs time off work or needs to claim compensation later on.

 

Information recorded at the time of an incident is generally considered to be more reliable evidence in court than something recalled from memory.

 

Details to include in a First Aid Casualty Report Form:

  • Full name of the casualty
  • The name of the person who dealt with the incident
  • The date and time of the incident
  • A factual description of what happened
  • The treatment given
  • If a casualty refuses treatment, state why and if they are not capable of making a decision, seek medical advice
  • What medical help was requested (and if not requested, why not?)
  • Layout of the incident – draw a picture, if possible
  • Further action required

 

 

RIDDOR 2013 Regulations(Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013)

 

RIDDOR is a UK health and safety legislation that applies to all ‘responsible persons’ and requires them to correctly report and keep a record of certain injuries and incidents that happen at work. Therefore, as an employer or someone in a position of authority, it is important that you know exactly what the law says.

 

General employees do not have a legal responsibility to report incidents under RIDDOR. However, if, as an employee, you witness or experience something that falls under RIDDOR, you should report this to an appropriate supervisor
