Accidents at work

What is RIDDOR?

RIDDOR is the law that requires employers, and other people in control of work premises, to report and keep records of:

  • work-related accidents which cause death;
  • work-related accidents which cause certain serious injuries (reportable injuries);
  • diagnosed cases of certain industrial diseases; and
  • certain ‘dangerous occurrences’ (incidents with the potential to cause harm).

The HSE has produced a brief guide to the reporting of injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences.
