Please use this form to report an accident, incident or ill-health at work. This information is required by law.
Please note, COVID-19 is normally a reportable disease if an employee is infected as a result of their work (healthcare workers). You must report only when the diagnosis has been confirmed by a pathology test (PCR testing), not solely on the basis of symptoms.
Deaths from COVID-19 are also reportable in nursing and residential care homes.
In non-healthcare settings, infection is unlikely to arise out of work activities, and would therefore not be reportable.
