RIDDOR is the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013. It is a legal requirement to report accidents and ill health at work. The information enables the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities to identify where and how risks arise and to investigate serious accidents.
You must report all of the following, if they result from a work related activity:
All incidents can be reported online but a telephone service is in place for reporting fatal and specified injuries only - call the Incident Contact Centre on 0345 300 9923 (opening hours Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm).
More information on accident reporting can be found on the Health and Safety Executive website.
As a notifier you are acting as the responsible person under RIDDOR legislation and you are under a legal obligation to make the notification. You have a lawful basis for processing the personal data of the injured person. Local Authorities and the HSE process this data as part of their public task.
