HSE’s suite of Riddor forms is being refreshed to improve user experience. Further details are below. For more information about how you make a Riddor report visit their website
The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) requires employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises (the Responsible Person) to report certain serious workplace accidents, occupational diseases and specified dangerous occurrences.
These reports let the relevant enforcing authority know that an incident has occurred so they can identify where and how risks arise, and whether they need to be investigated. This allows the enforcing authorities to prioritise their work helping dutyholders understand what they need to do to manage risk in the workplace. For guidance on what, and how, to report, visit the HSE’s website.
The suite of Riddor forms is being refreshed, moving to a more modern platform to improve user experience and give an enhanced look and feel. Reporting requirements remain unchanged.
A feature of the new forms is that once a report has been submitted to the RIDDOR database an email copy will no longer be automatically sent by the system to the notifier email address.
Occupational disease, Dangerous Gas Fitting, Dangerous Occurrence, Dangerous Occurrence Offshore and Injury Offshore forms have now launched. The final two forms – Flammable Gas and Injury – will be live by end April 2019.
