HSE uprate guidance supporting the RIDDOR

HSE has uprated guidance supporting the RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences) Regulations. https://www.hse.gov.uk/riddor/?utm_source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=guidance-push&utm_term=riddor-headline&utm_content=digest-18-apr-24. The main changes to the guidance:

  • more direct links to guidance on types of reportable incidents
  • improved guidance on who should and should not report under RIDDOR
  • improved guidance on what is meant by a ‘work-related’ accident
  • information on when an occupational disease is not reportable
  • increased clarity on when an ‘over-7-day’ absence should be reported

However, it should be noted that document INDG453(rev1); A brief guide to the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) is still valid.
