Immediately record teacher witness statements online

Recording witness statements immediately is vital when a serious incident or injury occurs with a pupil, staff member or visitor during school time. Avoid any fuzzy recollections of the incident and build a comprehensive picture of all involved with a pre-built witness statement template. The pre-build format allows headteachers and CEOs of MATS to build an accurate picture using accident investigation software.

Attach supporting accident images, files or videos

Some recorded first-aid accidents or incidents may require additional supporting images, videos or files added to the witness statements. The files can be risk assessments and the processes followed during the accident. Keep all important incident information in one place, using Medical Tracker’s accident investigation software.

Get notifications of the accident investigation process

Account admins can alter the permissions and visibilities headteachers, CEOs and other leadership members to receive notifications when a serious injury or incident is recorded. CEOs can be made aware of injuries that result in hospitalisation but avoid the everyday grazed knee notification.

Follow statutory requirements from HSE

Following the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999), Regulation 5 highlights the requirements of employers to plan, organise, control, monitor and review their health and safety arrangements. Accident investigations are an essential part of these statutory requirements.

Support any claim handlers, legal representation or solicitors

If an accident is passed to claim handlers, insurance companies or solicitors (this can be immediately or sometime in the future), it is important to have all information accessible and in one place.

It helps me with our site manager and look at health and safety improvements. For example, In technology, the bulk of our injuries were eye injuries and it was through not wearing safety goggles. So we were able to locate what health and safety issues are happening in departments.
