RIDDOR


Record and report an accident, incident or near miss

Who needs to make the report?

Some accidents and problems at work need to be reported to the authorities under the Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR). Deciding who needs to report the incident will depend on factors such as who was involved and where it occurred.

If you are self-employed and working on someone else’s premises

If you suffer a major injury or an over three-day injury, while working on someone else’s premises, the person in control of the premises needs to report your accident.

If you are self-employed and working on your own premises

If you or a member of the public is injured, there is a dangerous occurrence or a doctor tells you that you are suffering from a work-related disease, you have the duty to make the report.

If you have employees

You need to report accidents resulting in death, major injury or over three-day injuries to your employees. If a doctor notifies you that one of your employees has a work-related disease, you have the duty to make the report.

If you have self-employed people working on your premises

You must report major injuries and over three-day injuries that happen to self-employed people working on your premises.

If you have mobile workers working on your premises

It is good practice to inform the employers of mobile workers as soon as possible of any accident. Mobile workers are workers who work away from a central base such as service engineers, or sales representatives.
