Report an incident

‌All work-related accidents involving injury or damage to property and significant "near-miss" incidents MUST be reported to the Safety and Environmental Protection Service.  Serious incidents should be notified immediately to SEPS by telephone or email, where possible. See Contacts page.)

Incident Reports should be submitted to SEPS using the webform links below. (Note that these have been migrated to the University Helpdesk system from 15th June 2022 and so will look slightly different to what has been in use before although the content required is the same.  Please update any bookmarks you may have to the old forms.  The paper report form is also withdrawn.)

Submit an Incident Report  (GUID required) - Incident Report Form

Don't have a GUID? Use as a guest - Incident Report Form

So that legal time limits for reporting relevant incidents to the Health and Safety Executive are not exceeded, don't delay sending an initial report while waiting for additional information or investigating the incident - that information can be supplied later when it is available.

Please make sure that you have also reported the incident within your own department either to your line manager or via the local reporting system. To support this, the webform allows you to include email addresses to which the report will circulated.

‌Note that SEPS will not action fabric repairs via this system and you should submit a Works Request to Estates if remedial work is required.
