Cross Infection Control
Injuries and accidents

Dentaljuce’s excellent module on Cross Infection Control in Dentistry is written in straightforward language for the whole dental team, and covers all you could want to know about this increasingly important core verifiable CPD topic for dentists and dental nurses. If you haven’t subscribed to dentaljuce yet, why not join us now at this amazingly low price !

 Injuries and accidents at work have many legal implications for both the employer / supervisor, and the person who is injured. In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) needs to be informed about some injuries and accidents, but not others.

Do you know when you must legally report an accident? Does a needle-stick injury need reporting? If the seal on the autoclave burst, but nobody was hurt, does this need reporting to the HSE?

Why do simple accidents that cause little harm (like bumping your head on the operating light) need to go into an Accident Book ?

The juce on this page introduce RIDDOR - Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations – and lets you know all on one page what you need to know about it.
