RIDDOR Changes - Chance to Respond

HSEWe are currently in a three month period of consultation on proposed changes to the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995.

Changes to RIDDOR were recommended in Lord Young's report on health and safety published last year, which among other issues contained a proposal to increase the threshold for reporting workplace injuiries to seven days.

The consultation paper is available online at CD233 - Proposed amendment to RIDDOR and the deadline for responses is 9 May 2011.

If you and your staff may be affected by the proposed changes you may wish to have your say!
