Employers are reminded about their obligations in relation to health and safety for employees. Do you have:

An Accident and Incident Form [if an employee has an accident/incident]
Staff trained in First Aid Response [this was previously occupational first aid and is in line with requirements under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act, 2005]
Staff trained in Fire Safety Training
All staff trained in manual handling [this should be in line with requirements under the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work [General Application] Regulations, 2007]
Accident Report Book [for employee accidents]
Training in other areas as may be relevant to your business in line with health and safety

Under law employers are required to report accidents to the Health & Safety Authority [HSA] where an employee is out of work for more than three consecutive days, not including the day of the accident. This includes a Saturday and Sunday. Check out the HSA website for more information and some free publications on health and safety
