Accident Reporting

The Reporting of Injuries, Deaths and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) places a legal duty on any employer, self employed person or someone in control of work premises to report and record some work-related accidents by the quickest means possible.

 

What must I report?

You must report:

  • Deaths;
  • Major injuries – for example Some fractures, dislocations and amputations, loss of sight, penetrating eye injuries, electric shocks and loss of consciousness;
  • Over 3 day injuries – where an employee or self employed person is away from work or unable to perform their normal work duties for more than three consecutive days;
  • Injuries to members of the public or people not at work where they are taken away from the scene of the accident to hospital;
  • Some work related diseases;
  • Dangerous occurrences – where something happens that does not result in an injury but could have done.
