Reporting of Injury Diseases, Dangerous Occurrence Regulations
Reporting of Injury, Diseases, Dangerous, Occurrence Regulations 1995
The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrence Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) came into effect on 01st April 1996. The regulations only apply to England, Scotland and Wales (Northern Ireland will develop a similar proposal at a later date}. They replace the 1985 RIDDOR Regulations. As with the old RIDDOR Regulations, the responsibility for reporting cases of work related disease rests primarily with the employer and the self employed. Reports are submitted to the Health & Safety enforcing authorities and the information used to target action to improve ill health and prevention control.
If you are an employer, self employed or in control of work premises you will have duties under RIDDOR.
Reporting accidents at work and ill health at work is a legal requirement.
