A statement on incidents at nuclear installations in Britain that meet Ministerial reporting criteria is reported to the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and the Secretary of State for Scotland and is published every quarter by the Health and Safety Executive.

For the period 1 October 2006 to 31 December 2006 there was one incident at Sellafield which met the reporting criteria. This involved a major injury accident ( a broken arm, fractured ulna and crush injuries to the wrist ) to one of British Nuclear Group Sellafield Ltd’s ( BNGSL ) workers whilst maintaining equipment in the Waste Treatment Complex Supercompactor Glovebox Suite on the Sellafield Licensed Site.
