It's not just the big stuff
All injury accidents and incidents with potential or actual injury on-site, however minor, must be reported to McLaughlin & Harvey as soon as possible; an investigation may follow. This includes accidents, a near miss, environmental incident or minor / first aid injury including ‘no lost time’ events.
The aim of such reports and investigations is to establish what happened, and to enable the company to identify where improvements can be made to prevent re-occurrence. We consider all ‘near misses’ as learning opportunities to prevent similar future occurrences.
We have a legal duty to report certain accidents and dangerous occurrences to Enforcing Authorities, i.e. the HSE, HSENI or HSA. In the event that a contractor is required to report an accident or incident that has happened on one of our sites, then completed accident records, investigation reports and associated enforcing authority notifications generated by the contractor should be provided to the contract management team or McLaughlin & Harvey's Health & Safety Department at Head Office.
