An employee steps out of his private car in the office car park. In doing so, he somehow twists his ankle. As a result he has more than 7 days off work. The employee had not yet started work for the day. There were no defects to the car park surface, debris or spillages etc. present that may have contributed to the incident and the light was good.
No. Provided that there was nothing about the condition and design of the car park surface, condition, slope, weather conditions, lighting etc which contributed to the accident. This is not reportable because, on the face of it, the accident that resulted in the injury did not arise out of, nor was it connected to the work activity. Note - If the employee was “not at work” then their employer might still have to report the injury if the employee, who was not at work, was taken from the place of the accident to a hospital for treatment. The “accident” must still have arisen out of, or be connected with the work activity though – so if the injured person put their foot in a pot hole and twisted their ankle, then it might be reportable, if they had just stepped awkwardly out of the car, then not.
