Only "Responsible Persons" including employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises should submit reports under RIDDOR. If you are an employee (or representative) or a member of the public wishing to report an incident about which you have concerns, please refer to our advice.
Essential maintenance is required to the HSE IT infrastructure.
As a result of infrastructure maintenance, the forms facility may experience brief periods of disruption during the weekend of Saturday 18 May - Sunday 19 May 2013.
Responsible persons should complete the appropriate online report form listed below. The form will then be submitted directly to the RIDDOR database. You will receive a copy for your records
If you have problems accessing a form, this may be due to the (Internet) security settings on the PC that you are using. A series of frequently asked questions is available to help you complete your online form.
All incidents can be reported online but a telephone service is also provided for reporting fatal and major injuries only - call the Incident Contact Centre on 0845 300 9923 (opening hours Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 5 pm).
The HSE and local authority enforcement officers are not an emergency service.
More information on when, and how, to report very serious or dangerous incidents, can be found by visiting the HSE out of hours webpage. If you want to report less serious incidents out of normal working hours, you can always complete an online form.
