Accident Reporting

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will ensure that vocational training accident reporting procedure advice forms part of placement officers’ briefing to employers offering work experience. (98087)

While the LSC has no plans to include accident reporting procedure advice forms within placement officers’ briefing, the LSC already has, within its funding mechanisms, health and safety standards which deal with accidents and incidents while learners are undertaking vocational training with employers. The LSC has also issued information for those involved with learners on work placements. LSC funded organisations also sign an annual declaration (HSQ1) which stipulates that there are effective arrangements in place to identify, notify and report learner accidents.
