(5) The notification shall indicate the location of the accident, its nature, the names of any injured persons and whether any such persons are employees.
(6) The utility and others are urged to notify the commission of any unusual occurrences which, because of their number or dangerous potential, indicate the desirability of corrective action.
(7) Notifications provided for in s. PSC 104.04 and reports provided for in s. PSC 104.05 shall be required only for occurrences which result from functions directly connected with the furnishing of service by a utility. Accidents arising for reasons not related to specific public utility functions and which arise out of circumstances common to general business operations require no notification or report. Such matters as motor vehicle accidents, accidents occurring on the premises of a utility or third person due to slippery floors, falls or the like, are types of situations where notification or reports are not required. The enumeration is not exclusive but is intended to be indicative of the type of case where notification or reports are not required.
