  • Accident Record

    All workplace accidents—no matter how minor or seemingly insignificant—must be documented and carefully reviewed. This applies to not just permanent employees but also contractors, visitors, customers and the general public.

    Accident records give businesses the information they need to find out the cause of an accident and take the necessary steps to prevent it from happening again. To meet legislative requirements, an accident report must have detailed information about the accident, personal information about the employee, and the extent of their illness or injury.

    Serious accidents must be reported to WorkSafe New Zealand to be investigated.
