Report an accident/incident at work

As an employer, or self employed person, you have certain legal duties under the Reporting of Injuries, Disease and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR) to report certain accidents, incidents and near misses.

All reportable incidents can be reported online via the Health and Safety Executive website (HSE). Once completed, the form is submitted directly to the RIDDOR database and you will get a copy for your own records.
