New application forms for registering accidents at work


On 9 July 2013 the new Rules on Reports in the Field of Health and Safety at Work came into force, which prescribe standard forms for applications in connection with safety and health at work. Standard forms and instructions for completing and submitting applications are available on the Labour Inspectorate website: http://www.id.gov.si/si/storitve/obrazci.

The Rules concretise the provisions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, which has been in force since 2011. According to this Act, employers and self-employed persons must immediately report to the competent inspection authority (i) every accident at work resulting in death and accidents causing an employee to be unable to work for more than three working days, as well as any collective accident; (ii) the appearance of any dangers; and (iii) established occupational diseases. Any employer who does not inform the inspection authority and does not report the event according to the regulations can be punished with a fine between €2,000 and €40,000 and its responsible person with a fine between €500 and €4,000; self-employed persons may be subject to a fine between €500 and €10,000.
