RIDDOR Regulations 2012

The Reporting of Incidents, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences (Amendment) Regulations 2012

In Force from 06 April 2012


The RIDDOR Regulations 2012 (Reporting of Incidents, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Amendment Regulations 2012) amends the reporting requirements of the RIDDOR Regulations 1995.


The amendment increases the 'over three day' absence period to over seven consecutive days absence. i.e. it increases the period of absence, which is used for reporting injuries, that lead to a worker being incapacitated from over 3 days to over 7 days absence including weekends.


In other words if an employer is absent from work for over 7 days as a result of injury or accident then the injury or accident must be reported. Accidents or injuries resulting in over 3 days absence no longer need to be reported unless they exceed 7 days absence. However records for accidents and injuries resulting in over 3 days absences still need to be recorded.


The deadline by which the reports must be made have been increased from 10 to 15 days for over seven days absence.


Duty holders will still need to continue to record over three day injuries and use this information to review their health and safety systems and procedures. The changes to RIDDOR were implemented on 6th April 2012.
