Accident & Incident Reporting

Please note that all accidents which take place on University premises or relating to University business must be reported on the new standard Incident Report Form introduced in April 2009.  Similarly, all "near miss" incidents must also be reported.

We have produced guidance notes on the completion of the new form, along with a flowchart detailing the process which must be followed in the event of an accident or incident.

You can download the form, guidance and flowchart by clicking on the links below:

A witness statement form is also available for download which may be required to be completed in the event of a serious accident or incident:
