Discussion - The Review of The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR)

The discussion ended on 30 June 2005.

The RIDDOR review

Have you ever suffered a personal injury at work? Do you want to make your workplace safer? Whether you are the chairman of a multi-million pound business empire or the owner of a small business, an employer, a worker, or self-employed, you can help the Health and Safety Commission (HSC), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities to develop a new workplace incident reporting system to take us to 2010 and beyond.


This Discussion Document is an opportunity to consider the current reporting system and its direction in a fundamental way.

Although the Discussion Document contains no formal proposals for changes to the Regulations, it discusses RIDDOR's key objectives and current issues and identifies proposals where changes might be made to benefit both HSE and local authorities as well as duty holders.

We are reviewing the Regulations following a commitment made by the HSC in the Revitalising Health and Safety Strategy Statement to undertake a fundamental review of the health and safety incident reporting regulations.
