When completing accident reports please ensure the information is an accurate account of the accident. It is important that those filling in the form do not speculate or provide unnecessary information. The same applies to any related correspondence such as witness statements, emails, meeting notes etc. The reason for this is that accident reports and any other related correspondence may be used as evidence in any subsequent court case and the council’s insurers are keen to ensure all records remain purely factual.
Once submitted a copy of your report will be automatically sent to the email address you enter; therefore it is essential you only use your work email address (forms should never be sent to home email addresses).
Please read the Incident Report User Guide for further information.
