Earlier in the year, a new incident reporting system – ANVIL – was introduced across all other NCC services to record details of accidents, near misses and violent incidents. This system replaced the previous report forms ‘Accident/Near Miss Form (ACC1)’ and the ‘Violent Incident Report Form (VI)’ which had been in use for a number of years. ANVIL is now being implemented across all NCC schools with effect from 1 October 2018. Academies who take advantage of the Corporate Health and Safety SLA should also start to use the system from this date.
A Health and Safety Bulletin on this subject has been produced by the Corporate Health and Safety Team. Headteachers should carefully read the content of the bulletin and take the required actions. The bulletin can be accessed here: H&S Bulletin 2018-05 – Sept 2018
