RIDDOR is the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations that came into force in 1996.
 
The regulations made under the Health and Safety at Work Act applies a set of reporting requirements to work activities. The purpose of which is to generate reports for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities to indicate where and how risks arise. The data collected is then used to prevent and reduce workplace injuries and ill health.
 
The following workplace events must be reported:
 
  • Death resulting from an accident
  • Major injury resulting from an accident (reportable injuries)
  • Dangerous occurrences that have the potential to cause significant harm
  • Specified disease
It is vitally important that if an accident occurs which is ‘reportable’ that it is reported. Failure to report is a criminal offence that can lead to an unlimited fine and up to two years in prison.
