PYRAMID™ Accident/Incident Reporting
We have a legal responsibility to ensure that major accidents, injuries, near misses, fatalities, and reportable diseases are reported to the HSE Contact Centre under RIDDOR regulations.
The problem is that often the paper based accident form is not completed or processed correctly and therefore not compliant with RIDDOR requirements. Further problems arise when accident records cannot be found and employees/customers instigate claims.
- Within PYRAMID™ the opportunity exists to add online assessment of all accident, incident and disease reporting, hold all records online (indefinitely), and also ensure that RIDDOR requirements are completed.
- All accidents/incidents to be reported on PYRAMID™ through the Event Notification Menu
- Blank forms can be printed off from PYRAMID™
- Once the form has been completed it is logged onto the PYRAMID™ system, allowing interrogation at a later date
PYRAMID™ Enforcement Monitoring
All organisations are subject to visits from government agencies and enforcement officers for a number of reasons, from time to time.
Your organisation may have no simple way of collating these visits, or ensuring rapid follow through of any issues identified by Enforcement Officers.
Enforcement monitoring functionality within PYRAMID™, will make a significant difference in the way these visits can be monitored, ensuring that any issues identified are dealt with quickly and professionally.
- Blank enforcement visit forms can be printed from the system, if required
- All enforcement visits can be reported on PYRAMID™ through the Event Notification Menu, even if no issues are highlighted
- Should the officer give a re-visit date, this can also be entered and when due, PYRAMID™ will remind you that the officer is coming back
- As a lot of enforcement officers will make annual re-visits, you will also receive an annual reminder prior the anniversary of the officer’s original visit
