Matthew Pinto-Chilcott, Owner of Consensus HR comments: Reporting accidents and illness at work “Throughout my career this is one Health & Safety Form / process that I have not had to complete that often, but it is vital as an employer that you are fully aware the procedure and when to use and who to inform. RIDDOR, is the Reporting Injuries, Diseases, Dangerous, Occurrence Regulations 2013 and our current blog is from the Health & Safety Executive with some key useful information and tools for all employers and businesses to use as needed.”
Make sure you submit a RIDDOR report for a workplace accident or illness where necessary.
RIDDOR puts duties on employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises to report certain serious workplace accidents, occupational diseases and specified dangerous occurrences.

Our publication Reporting accidents and incidents at work explains what is required from employers and provides information about RIDDOR.
HSE’s Accident Book can be used to record details of all work-related accidents including injuries that employers must report under RIDDOR.
