RIDDOR stands for the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013. It’s a law designed to keep you safe whilst you’re at work.


When incidents are reported, it enables enforcing authorities such as the Health and Safety Executive to identify where and how risks arise and help to reduce injury or ill health in the workplace. The data collated can also be used as evidence-based rationale to influence new legislation and guidance.


As the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure.


And the signs are positive. Data trends show that around half as many workers are fatally injured, when compared to 20 years ago. So it’s no surprise that recording and reporting accidents and ill health at work is a legal requirement.


RIDDOR places a legal duty on employers, self-employed people, as well as people in control of premises. These responsible persons must record and report certain incidents, injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences involving employees, self-employed workers and members of the public.
