School staff have been trained on the system (typically 2-3 people per school) and can use this to report incidents related to employees, pupils and visitors etc. Schools may have their own internal procedure for recording incidents. It is advised that the more serious incidents are to be recorded on the online system AssessNet.
The Headteacher may decide that they wish to be the person who completes any RIDDOR reports that need to be sent to the Health and Safety Executive. Please contact the Health and Safety team for this permission access. firstname.lastname@example.org
