Reporting of incidents: no blame, just facts
RIDDOR: The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations
No Health and Safety system can ever eliminate the occurrence of accidents and dangerous incidents as we are all human beings and accidents will happen. A robust well-integrated system will of course significantly reduce the likelihood of such incidents happening but the best any organisation can aim for is continual improvement in the way it operates.
The best way of achieving this is to learn lessons from every accident and near miss that occurs. This means a thorough investigation in order to identify what steps must be taken to ensure there can be no repetition.
Under RIDDOR legislation, serious incidents have to be reported to the HSE who use these reports as one method of monitoring the levels of safety at work practised in the UK.
We can help with the recording and investigating of any accident or incident which is reportable under RIDDOR.
