Hi all, I was wondering if somebody could clarify for me that point 5 of schedule 4 'particulars to be given of accidents' (Name, address and occupation of person giving the notice, if other than the injured person) is still relevant and hasn't been excluded due to changes in GDPR? I only ask because somebody in my workplace continually fills in accident reports but won't fill in their address details; when I challenge them on it, I want to be able to come from a position of strength and make them aware that it's part of the requirements under the Regs. Please can someone confirm? Thanks.

it's not just the form its how you process the data also.

First point of call get these https://books.hse.gov.uk/?DI=649639 the cost is negligable.  I'll be honest though i dont know what the differnce is between the version 2 form and the old ones, does look like the address section is still in there though with a statement to had to the DP officer or nomiated person.

Absolutely nothing stopping details being added to the form immediately before it vanishes in to the black hole of personnel records - at one employment we copied the form marked it "As Received" and then filled in any missing or additional data to the original prior to filing.

Be thankful they are bothering to start the record - batter them with legislation and you may find the first you see of an accident is the solicitors claim letter.
