Public consulation on Riddor reporting
Published:  03 August, 2012

LONDON: The Health and Safety Executive has started a 12-week consultation on proposals to simplify and clarify how businesses comply with the requirements under the Reporting of Injuries, Disease and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (Riddor).

The review is part of HSE’s work to make it easier for businesses and other users to understand what they need to do to comply with health and safety law, following recommendations made in Professor Löfstedt’s independent review of health and safety legislation.

The proposals also seek to implement the changes recommended in the 2010 Government Report, ‘Common Sense, Common Safety’, by examining whether Riddor is the best approach to providing an accurate national picture of workplace accidents.

This consultation runs from 2 August to 28 October.
