In an attempt to comply with GDPR, are you at risk of disposing of data that may be important when trying to defend future employee injury and disease claims?
GDPR requires you to retain personal data no longer than is necessary for the purpose you obtained it for, however companies need to be careful when determining what records to dispose of.
Health and Safety records can be essential when trying to defend work-related injury and disease claims. Medical issues often take many years to manifest and employees have up to three years from becoming aware of a work related condition, to actually make a claim.
Whilst this may seem more relevant to high risk activities, where employees may have been potentially exposed to excessive noise levels, vibration, asbestos etc, even in white collar environments, the incorrect use of Display Screen Equipment can result in claims.
