Coronavirus (COVID-19): update

Guidance on RIDDOR reporting of COVID-19

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) cover accident reporting.

If there is a RIDDOR reportable incident in the workplace involving a gig, agency or temporary worker, the duty to report it is on the person in control of the premises where the incident occurs. This is usually the end user business.
