HSE launches consultation on RIDDOR

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a consultation on the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR).

Changes proposed to the plans will remove the need to report cases where information is of little use or could be collected more effectively by other means.

Among the amendments include self-employed people no longer being required to report injuries or illness to themselves, but it will still be necessary for all fatal injuries to workers and members of the public to be reported.

David Charnock, HSE's consultation manager, said: "We are proposing to simplify the requirements by removing the duty to report in those areas where the information can be better obtained from other sources or where the data isn't particularly useful to the regulators."

It is vital that bosses keep up to date with legislation, as they will need to alter their operations to abide by them.

If changes are not made, companies could face legal action.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801423576-ADNFCR
