3F1Amendment as to duty of railway company to report certain accidents.N.I.

(1)Section six of the Regulation of Railways Act, 1871 M1 (which imposes upon a railway company the duty of notifying to the Ministry certain accidents) as extended by sub-section (2) of section thirteen of the Railway Employment (Prevention of Accidents) Act, 1900 M2, shall have effect subject to the following modifications:—

(i)An accident which is attended with personal injury to a person or persons in the employment of the railway company, but which does not disable any such person for more than three days from earning full wages at the work at which he was employed, need not be notified to the Ministry if, but for the fact that it was attended with personal injury, notification would not have been required by the said section six as so extended; but if, and so soon as, it is known that any person injured has been so disabled for more than three days, the company shall notify the accident by the earliest practicable post;

(ii)An accident which occurs to a person not in the employment of the railway company, and which is not connected with the movement of any engine or railway vehicle, need not be notified to the Ministry by the earliest practicable post, but all such accidents as are referred to in this paragraph shall be notified to the Ministry in such manner and at such times as may be required by directions given by it under the said section six.

(2)Nothing in the Notice of Accidents Acts, 1894 [1894 c.28] and 1906 [1906 c.53] , shall be construed as requiring notice to be given of any accident if, but for the provisions of this section, notification of that accident would have been required by section six of the Regulation of Railways Act, 1871, as so extended as aforesaid.
