I report injuries to school pupils and college students. What category should I use on the F2508 form under “Injured Person’s Employment Status”?
Students and pupils are not at work and therefore are regarded as members of the public (MOPs) for this part of the form. The exception is where a student / pupil, including children, are on a recognised training scheme or work experience. Under health and safety law they are regarded as employees. In these circumstances the employer or person in control of the work premises where the pupil or student was doing the training should report the injury as if they were one of their employees.
