HSE centralises accident reporting


THE HEALTH & Safety Executive this week received £500,000 of Government money to set up a more efficient accident reporting system.

The new centralised system will give employers a single point of contact for health and safety advice rather than the 500 plus different addresses used at present.

The location of the new facility is as yet undecided, but an HSE spokesman stressed that this would not lead to the closure of regional offices.

Employers were warned that there would be 'no excuse' for failing to report workplace accidents after April 2001, when the new system is expected to be in operation.

The grant makes up 75% of the total funding needed for the project. HSE will also be inviting private sector partners to work on the project.
