Changes to RIDDOR Reporting

HSESubject to Parliamentary approval, the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) is to change on the 6 April 2012.

From April 2012 the trigger point will increase from over three days to over seven days of 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.

New guidance that explains the change has been available to download from the HSE website since 16 January 2012.

For more on this see the RIDDOR section on the HSE website.
