Changes to reporting workplace accidents from April 2012

Currently, employers have a duty to report workplace accidents to the Health and Safety Executive when this results in the employee being absent from work for three days or more.

Under changes to RIDDOR reporting, employers will only have a duty to report workplace accidents to the Health and Safety Executive where these cause an employee to be off work for seven days or more. The change is effective from 6 April 2012, subject to parliamentary approval.

For more information, see the Health and Safety Executive website.
