BI 510 Accident Book
The United Kingdom Accident Book, referred to as BI 510 has been issued by the Health and Safety Executive, and is sponsored by The Department for Work and Pensions. Employers and employees can use this book to record details of work-related injuries for which Social Security benefits could be payable.
The BI 510 Accident Book can be used to record details of injuries that employers must report under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995, and contains guidance on this legislation as well as the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981.
Safety representatives are legally entitled to see accident records that employers have to keep, this by law. A tick box is included on each page of the Accident Book asking whether the injured person gives his or her consent to the disclosure of the information contained in that record to safety representatives, to enable them to carry out their statutory functions more effectively.
The arrangements to pass this information should be discussed between employers, employees, and or their representatives. The aim should be to make the best possible use of this, and other information to meet health and safety objectives.
The format of the Accident book has been designed to protect the privacy of personal information. Individual record sheets can be removed and stored securely. This will help to keep personal information in confidence.
The Accident Book will help you comply with legal requirements under social security and health and safety legislation, and to share information with safety representatives, taking confidentiality fully into account.
