Accident Reporting

Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations, commonly known as "RIDDOR", requires a "responsible person" to notify the enforcing authority where a person dies or sustains an injury or specific medical conditions or where a dangerous occurrence takes place in connection with a work activity. The Regulations set out the specific injuries which are reportable including fractures, amputation, decompression sickness and others. A list of the dangerous occurrences reportable under RIDDOR is provided in Schedule 1 of the Regulations, while a second schedule sets out reportable diseases under RIDDOR. Separate notification requirements for mines, quarries and railways are also explained.

I have an accident investigation procedure and forms that mean everything is recorded in the unfortunate event that you need them for your insurers, regardless of the severity of the accident.
