Incidents and Near Misses

All Safety, Health and Environmental incidents, including fires and near misses - incidents that have not resulted in injury - must be reported to both Line Management and the Safety Officer, or in the case of those involving radiation, to the Radiation Protection Advisers. All incidents should be reported using the 'Report Incident' link above, recording the date/time and location of the incident, those involved, and a brief description of the incident. In order to facilitate subsequent investigation it is important that following an incident or accident, equipment, machinery etc., should be left untouched unless by so doing a further hazard would be created.
