Accident investigation policy

This policy describes the circumstances when the Council will investigate reported accidents and dangerous occurrences.

The Council investigates accidents for a number of reasons including to ensure that adequate measures have been put in place to prevent further risk and to find out if breaches of legislation have occurred.

Not all reported accidents will be investigated by the Council. The policy seeks to make best use of the Council's staff resources and concentrate on investigations of incidents which are serious or are likely to give rise to serious public concern.
