Quick guide to RIDDOR 2013

Read our Quick Guide to RIDDOR 2013 for a rundown of the reporting requirements for accidents, incidents and diseases introduced in October 2013.


On 1 October 2013, the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) replaced the previous 1995 version of the regulations.

The reporting categories have been much simplified and the whole structure of the regulations has been revamped.

The Quick Guide to RIDDOR 2013 covers the key changes but it’s also designed so that you can quickly look up whether an incident, accident or disease is likely to be reportable.

The headings are:

  • main changes
  • reporting
  • fatal accidents
  • reportable injuries to employees
  • reportable injuries to persons not at work
  • reportable disease categories
  • reportable “dangerous occurrence” categories.

Within each category we’ve explained the reporting timescale and outlined what types of event need to be reported.

Note. Although the reporting requirements are much simpler, it’s not possible in this short guide to reflect each one. You should still use the HSE’s guidance before making your report.

Note. You can use our guide as a ready reference by putting a copy with your accident reporting policy and/or accident book.
