Accidents

The University cares about its staff, students, those who visit us and our contractors. Should any of our activities cause injury or ill health, however minor, the University needs to find out about it, not to apportion blame, but to learn why it happened so as to prevent recurrence.

Therefore all accidents, however small, which happen to University staff or students engaged in University activities - or which happen to anyone on University premises - must be reported on the University's Accident Report form.

An accident is "an unplanned or unexpected event or series of events that may result in personal injury or ill health, damage to property or none of these. An accident where there has been no personal injury or ill health is a near-miss".
