work-related accidents which result in death
work-related accidents which cause serious injuries (reportable injuries)
diagnosed cases of certain occupational diseases
certain 'dangerous occurrences' with the potential to cause harm, and
These reporting requirements allow regulators, such as the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), local authorities, the police and the Office for Rail and Road (ORR) to identify where and how risks arise and whether they should be investigated.
The previous RIDDOR regime was amended in October 2013 by RIDDOR, SI 2013/1471. The main changes simplified the reporting requirements of the RIDDOR regime by:
