Accident/Near Miss Reporting - Joint Statement

7 October 2015

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to advise you that the University’s new on line accident/near miss reporting tool is now available. This tool enables staff to report all accidents and near misses quickly and easily.

As a leading learning and research institution we recognise and value the importance of a robust environment for health and safety. Having accurate data on accidents and near misses allows us to take actions to prevent reoccurrence, to identify health and safety risks and to support our commitment to continually improve the working environment.

We wish to encourage and facilitate a culture of openness and honesty around health and safety. Accurately reporting accidents and near misses needs to be seen as a strength and an opportunity rather than a sign of weakness.

Please do make use of this new on line reporting tool: www.bristol.ac.uk/safety/accident. If you wish to know more please contact Safety and Health Services (www.bristol.ac.uk/safety/ or 88780).

 

Robin Geller, Guy Orpen and Steve Neck (Joint Unions H & S Representative)
