The law requires the following work-related incidents to be reported:

  • Deaths
  • Major injuries
  • Over seven-day injuries – where an employee or self-employed person is away from work or unable to work normally for more than seven consecutive days (not including the day of the injury or accident)
  • Injuries to members of the public or people not at work where they are taken from the scene of an accident to hospital
  • Some work-related diseases
  • Dangerous occurrences – where something happens that does not result in an injury, but could have done
  • Flammable gas incidents

Report an accident

All reportable accidents, dangerous occurrences or cases of occupational illness should be notified to the Incident Contact Centre (I.C.C)
