Reporting and follow-up of accidents and incidents

The objective of long-term working environment activities is to prevent ill health and accidents. One method of working in a preventative fashion is to use information about similar incidents (that are near misses or accidents) that occur at the workplace. Incident reporting is one of several methods used in this work to obtain an overview of the risks.

Reporting

  • All incidents, accidents (occupational injuries) and deviations are to be reported as soon as possible to the employer, such that appropriate measures can be taken to prevent repetition.
  • Incidents and less serious deviations are reported to your immediate mangager and investigated locally at LiU according to LiU routines found at https://insidan.liu.se/arbetsmiljo/arbetsskada?l=en&sc=true.
  • Seroius incidents, for example emissions of chemicals or gases, fire etc without injuries are to be reported immediately to the Swedish work environment authority. The department management (head of the department/equvialent and HR partner) must participate in the reporting process.   
  • Accidents (injuries) are to be reported immediately to the Swedish work environment authority. The department management (head of the department/equvialent and HR partner) must participate in the reporting process.   
  • More information and forms for co-workers at LiU

  • More information and forms for students 
  • More information and forms for Region Östergötland are available at intranet/corresponding site. 

 

Reporting och additional registration must be carried out for certain incidents 

If an incident or accident leads to an employee or student being exposed to a high level of a carcinogenic or mutagenic product, this must be recorded in a special exposure register. More information about this registration and about carcinogenic or mutagenic products is available on the ‘Management of chemicals’ pages on CMR products.

Follow-up

SAMS Working Groups read all reported incidents and accidents within their fields in order to determine whether it is possible to help operations to prevent the situation occurring again.
