First Aid at Work

Report an accident or near miss (riskNET)

If you have an accident or a near miss incident on Institute premises, whether or not there are apparent injuries, you must report it as soon as possible via UCL's on-line RiskNET system.  Anyone can make a report - it doesn't have to be the person who is injured.

Accident Treatment

People with minor injuries (cuts, abrasions, sprains) must immediately be referred to one of our qualified first-aiders.  Major injuries will be dealt with by the Accident and Emergency Department of University College London Hospital or the Royal Free Hospital.
