Reporting accidents at work (RIDDOR)

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) is the law that requires employers, and anyone else with responsibility for health and safety within a workplace, to report  and keep records of:

  • work-related deaths
  • specified serious injuries
  • injuries that result in absence from work for over seven days
  • injuries to a person not at work who is taken to hospital for treatment directly from the premises
  • cases of diagnosed industrial disease
  • near miss accidents.

You must report incidents as soon as possible. The best and easiest way to do this is online to the HSE.

The information will be submitted directly to the RIDDOR database and you will receive a copy for your records.

All incidents can be reported online but a telephone service remains for reporting fatal and major injuries only. Call 0845 300 9923 (Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm).
