The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences legislation (known as RIDDOR), requires employers to report certain accidents, injuries and work-related diseases or death, to the appropriate enforcing authority, eg. the Health and Safety Executive or the local environmental health department.
Under the law you must report:
1. Make sure you have a clear system for reporting accidents and incidents (you can use the accident investigation record template if required).
2. Make sure you know how to report an accident to the enforcing authority.
3. Ensure your employees know the name of the person to whom they should report any accidents.
4. Ensure your accident book complies with data protection.
