The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR)
Under the Reportable Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR), all employers have a legal duty to report certain types
†of accidents to the HSE. A typical example would be if an employee has been off work due to a work related injury or disease.
Therefore all injuries should be recorded in†an accident book. In addition, the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) require some events to be reported to the enforcing authority. A summary of the Regulations is shown below.
Accident Book (complies with the data protection act)
The following events must be reported to the enforcing authority (HSE or Council inspector) as quickly as possible (normally by telephone or fax) and then confirmed in writing using the appropriate form within ten days.
A death or major injury to an employee (for example the fracture of a bone - other than to the thumbs, fingers or toes).
A dangerous occurrence (for example, a vehicle overturning )
A disease resulting from your work or an injury resulting in admission to hospital for more than 24 hours.
An accident connected with your work where a member of the public is killed or taken to hospital.
An accident resulting in a person being off work, or unable to do their normal work, for more than three days or a case of a specified occupational disease certified by a doctor resulting from your work.
