The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1985 as applied to the Island (RIDDOR) came into force in January 1993. The regulations place duties on employers and the self employed to report accidents to the inspectorate.
Serious and fatal injuries at work should be reported immediately, whilst accidents resulting in injuries where workers have been off work for more than three days, should be reported within seven days of the injuries being sustained. There are also requirements to report certain diseases and dangerous occurrences that happen as a result of work activity.
The Inspectorate use these reports to identify where and how serious risks arise, which accidents need to be investigated and to provide you with information and advice to help control the risks and prevent similar accidents happening.
