The Reporting of Injuries / Diseases & Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) require employers and others to report accidents and some diseases that arise out of or in connection with work. These reports enable the enforcing authorities to identify where and how risks arise and to investigate serious accidents.

RIDDOR replaces five sets of previous Regulations. RIDDOR attempts makes things easier by simplifying what you should report and how to report it.

Employees and employers have a legal duty to report accidents and ill health in the workplace. The information enables the HSE to identify where and how risks arise and to investigate serious accidents. They help and advise you on preventive action to reduce injury, ill health and accidental loss - much of which is uninsurable.
