Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) have been amended and as of 2013, RIDDOR’s over-three-day injury reporting requirement has changed. The trigger point has increased from over three days’ to over seven days’ incapacitation (not counting the day on which the accident happened).  Incapacitation means that the worker is absent or is unable to do work that they would reasonably be expected to do as part of their normal work. The incident must be work related.  It also covers death, specified occupational diseases, specified injuries, accident reporting, near misses, dangerous occurrences, gas incidents.

Includes the latest advice on Coronavirus COVID 19 and RIDDOR by the HSE.

This course gives basic training of RIDDOR and how businesses need to plan and follow the rules of the HSE in respect of accident reporting and notification to the HSE.
