Reporting work related accidents or incidents
The law requires certain work-related injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences to be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
What needs to be reported:
- Death or major injuries to an employee or self-employed person working on your premises
- Death or hospitalisation of a member of the public
- Disease suffered by an employee that is related to work activities
- Dangerous occurrence that does not result in a reportable injury but which clearly could have done
How to report incidents and injuries
You can make a report by completing the on-line form at the HSE's website. The form will then be submitted directly to the RIDDOR.
