The HSE are currently in the process of updating the suite of RIDDOR Forms. The look and feel of the forms is being modernised, but the functionality and the reporting requirements are to remain unchanged.
As a result of these changes, when an updated form is accessed notifiers will no longer receive an email copy. If a copy is required the option to download a pdf copy will be available immediately after submission.
The HSE aim to have all forms updated by end of this month.
What is RIDDOR?
The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) is the law that requires employers, and other people in control of work premises, to report and keep records of:
- work-related accidents which cause death
- work-related accidents which cause certain serious injuries (reportable injuries)
- diagnosed cases of certain industrial diseases; and
- certain ‘dangerous occurrences’ (incidents with the potential to cause harm).
If you are unsure if something needs to be reported under RIDDOR, then contact us or the HSE and ask.
