How do I report an accident? (RIDDOR)

You can use THIS LINK to report an incident to the HSE.

RIDDOR is the law that requires employers, and other people in control of work premises, to report and keep records of:
  • work-related accidents which cause death;
  • work-related accidents which cause certain serious injuries (reportable injuries);
  • diagnosed cases of certain industrial diseases; and
  • certain ‘dangerous occurrences’ (incidents with the potential to cause harm).
Reporting certain incidents is a legal requirement. The report informs the enforcing authorities about deaths, injuries, occupational diseases and dangerous occurrences, so they can identify where and how risks arise, and whether they need to be investigated.
