Accident investigations - reminder for schools

Health Safety icon

17 Nov 2020

As you are aware, it is a legal requirement to investigate accidents at work.

The Management of Heath and safety at Work Regulations 1999, regulation 5, requires employers to plan, organise, control, monitor and review their health and safety arrangements. Health and safety investigations form an essential part of this process.

A number of schools use the Ealing Council Info-Exchange online system to manage their accidents and incidents. A number of schools still have one or more incidents that require investigating and closing off.

Please can schools ensure that their accidents and incident logs are up to date, especially completing the investigation section. Most incidents will only take a few minutes to close off.

If any school has a password or similar issue with the online system, please contact
