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.
Fatal and major injuries
Fatal and major injuries can be reported to the Incident Contact Centre:
Telephone: 0845 3009923 (Monday to Friday between 8.30am - 5pm).
Please note an authorised officer may investigate a reportable accident/incident to identify any breaches of health and safety legislation.
