Abstract These Regulations were made on 6 Dec. 1995, and are effective on 1 Apr. 1996. They replace the 1985 Regulations with the same title (S.I. 2023, see CIS 88-1753), as amended by S.I. 1989/1457. They require the notification of the enforcing authority (generally, the Health and Safety Executive) of fatalities and major injuries arising out of or in connection with work, as well as of dangerous occurrences and incapacities due to occupational accidents lasting more than three days. Cases of occupational disease and gas incidents are also to be reported. The keeping of records of events subject to notification is also required. In schedules: list of major injuries; dangerous occurrences (with particular schedules relating to offshore workplaces, mines, quarries, transport systems); reportable diseases (with activities they are related to); details to be noted in records; additional provisions related to mines, quarries and offshore workplaces.
