An all new Accident book has been created so that individual cases can be reported independent of each other and that records can be separated.
The traditional design of accident book allows other people to view personal details that have been entered from previous accidents. This is in clear breach of The Data Protection Act, whose primary concern is to protect personal information, ensuring it is not misused in any way.
The purpose of an accident book is to record information surrounding the occurrence of accidents and about the consequences to the individuals concerned. This is clearly personal information and therefore needs to be protected.
The new book allows details of accidents and affected individuals to be recorded but each report can be easily detached for filing and storage in a separate and secure location.
