The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) apply in England, Wales and Scotland. They place a duty on employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises (the 'responsible person') to report work-related deaths, serious injuries, occupational diseases and dangerous occurrences to the relevant enforcing authority by the fastest possible means and without delay. Enforcing authorities include, for example, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), local authorities, the Environment Agency and the General Medical Council. There is a link to a list of enforcing authorities in the 'Useful contacts' section at the end of this factsheet.

RIDDOR also sets out special requirements for gas-related incidents.

In Northern Ireland, the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1997 and the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2004 apply.

This factsheet explains what the Regulations cover, who they apply to and what employers must do to comply with them. It also provides useful hints and tips and sources of further information.
