“The worst thing any firm can do for its reputation is attempt a cover up. Hiding accidents from the press and the public not only lowers the opinion of a single endeavour – it paints the building industry as a whole in a negative light.” – smallbiztrends.com, Workplace Safety Issues

Take accountability for your actions and report immediately.
