RIDDOR Consultation24th September 2012

The HSE is currently consulting on their proposals to change RIDDOR.  To have your say (open until 28 October 2012) click here - http://www.hse.gov.uk/consult/condocs/cd243.htm   Summarised below are the most salient points –

  • Self-employed people will no longer have to report injuries or illnesses themselves
  • The removal of both the duty on employers to report dangerous occurrences outside high risk sectors/activities and requirements to report most occupational diseases.

The requirement to report all fatal injuries to workers and those to members of the public as a result of a work activity will remain, as will the duty to report major injuries to workers.  The aim of this is to ensure that the supply of useful information is retained and to facilitate improved reporting of such information.
