RIDDOR - Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations National Statistics logo

Further details are available on how reports made by employers and others under RIDDOR, are used for statistical purposes. Also provided is information on the effects of (i) the change in the reporting system, from September 2011 and (ii) the legal change in reporting requirements from April 2012, from over-3-days' incapacitation, to over-7-days'.

Under-reporting of RIDDOR non-fatal injuries

RIDDOR data needs to be interpreted with care because it is known that non-fatal injuries are substantially under-reported. Additionally, any comparisons between different subsets within RIDDOR data (e.g. comparisons between one industrial sector and another) need to take account of the possibility of there being markedly different reporting levels in the subsets being compared.

For the latest year 2012/13, early indications based on self-reported results, suggest that the reporting level of non-fatal injuries to employees recorded under the new RIDDOR requirement (ii above) has now fallen below half. Further work is ongoing to quantify and understand the impact of this change.

More detailed estimates of reporting levels for earlier years, based on the old RIDDOR requirement, are available by employment status and main industry.

No estimates are available on reporting levels of RIDDOR dangerous occurrences or domestic gas incidents.

Unless otherwise stated, the time series in the following tables covers the latest five-year period that is available.
