Course Overview

RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013) is a piece of legislation covering the legal obligation to report serious accidents, near misses and illnesses occurring through work. It can sometimes be difficult to decide if an incident "counts" under RIDDOR, and what does and does not need to be reported.

You take on the role of a health and safety expert to explore the requirements of the regulations. Choose your path through the content by answering a range of questions from the characters you meet and take a question and answer session to complete the course successfully.

Course Contents

Your RIDDOR (Accident Reporting) online course contains two modules

What Do I Need To Report?
What Do I Need To Report?
Knowing what counts as reportable under RIDDOR can be tricky. RIDDOR places a duty on ‘responsible persons’ to report serious workplace events and near misses to an enforcing agency, usually the HSE. In this module, the learner takes on the role of a health and safety expert to explore the requirements of the regulations.
Types of Reportable Incidents
Types of Reportable Incidents
Not every incident, accident or near-miss needs to be reported under RIDDOR – though all of them should be logged internally. The definitions of “work-related” incidents and the seven types of incidents that must be reported need to be understood in order to ensure that they are reported correctly and that accidents and illnesses are not over-reported.
Making a Report
Making a Report
This module explores who should report an incident, the way in which it should be reported and when it needs to be reported. It also highlights reporting deadlines for different kinds of incidents and what to do if a deadline is accidentally missed. It answers some of the common questions about making a report under RIDDOR.

The Importance of RIDDOR (Accident Reporting) Training

Workplace accidents are, sadly, a fairly common occurrence. Most employers have an accident book to report problems and near misses, but it is important to know when more action is required.

Training ensures every employee knows about the importance of RIDDOR and its requirements when an incident occurs. It makes reporting delays less likely.

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

What are the requirements of RIDDOR?
RIDDOR places a requirement on employers to report any deaths, certain kinds of serious accidents and some injuries and illnesses that occur during working time. Training on the subject can help you to know when an incident is reportable under RIDDOR; not every accident needs to be officially reported, though it should still be recorded.
Why is it important to report accidents at work?
It is important to report accidents at work so health and safety measures can be improved, making sure nobody else gets hurt in the future. Under RIDDOR, it is a legal requirement to report certain serious incidents. Failure to do so can result in fines for the companies and individuals involved.
Is it illegal not to report an accident at work?
It is illegal not to report an accident at work if it falls under certain guidelines laid out in RIDDOR. Not all accidents need to be reported. For accidents that do not have to be reported under RIDDOR, companies should keep a detailed written record. This also applies to near misses.
