Course Introduction

This Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) e-learning course is aimed at providing those who are responsible for reporting these incidents with an understanding of what is required of them and how they should comply with this important Health & Safety Regulation.

RIDDOR is a reporting system for work-related deaths, serious injuries, occupational diseases and dangerous occurrences. The main purpose of the regulations is to help prevent similar incidents from reoccurring.

It’s established that accidents don’t just happen. Something causes them. To prevent having similar accidents, businesses keep an accident book which notes down what happened, where, when and what caused it so that steps can be taken to avoid it happening again.

In many ways that’s the purpose of RIDDOR, to build up a picture not only of work-related deaths and serious injuries, but also occupational diseases and dangerous occurrences – in other words ‘near misses’, so that lessons can be learnt, and precautions be taken.
