INDUSTRIAL INJURY? WHAT TO DO?

A document to follow in case of an industrial injury is the GOVERNMENT DECREE Nr. 494/2001 Coll., to regulate methods of injury filing and reporting, specimen of an injury report, and the list of authorities and institutions to notify of an industrial injury and deliver an injury report. SPECIMEN of an injury report can be obtained from us.

What to do if someone gets injured at work

Act calmly, with deliberation, but fast.

1. Help:

poskytnout první pomoc - uklidnit postiženého - přivolat lékaře (eventuelně zajistit dopravu k lékaři) - dle potřeby přivolat policii, hasiče

2. Protect:

Protect the place of accident (warning light, warning flag, acoustic alarm) – keep the area around the place of accident safe (roads, construction material, stop engines, switch off electrical appliances…) – collect information on the place of accident (take photos, make a schematic drawing)

3. Inform (the management, trade unions):

WHAT happened
WHERE did that happen
TO WHOM (how many persons were injured)
KDO reports
