Accident records database breaks down

Three years' accident data not added to database because of IT problems

IT problems have delayed updates to the government's database of accidents that happen within the home.

The Home Accident Surveillance System (Hass), operated by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), records the number of injuries caused by accidents in the home.

While the statistics are often used as a source of stories about the number of people injured in bizarre sock-related accidents and other oddities, the system was intended to find out why people attend hospital Accident and Emergency departments.

But the last three years' worth of data have not been added to the database because of IT problems.
