Business Outcomes

Safety first! In practice, RIDDOR promotes health and safety in the workplace, which helps to prevent accidents.
RIDDOR places duties onto employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises to report
certain serious workplace accidents, occupational diseases and specified dangerous occurrences. It is a piece of
UK health and safety legislation. It applies to all ‘responsible persons’ and requires them to correctly report and keep a record of certain injuries and incidents that happen at work. Therefore, as an employer or someone in a
position of authority, it is important that you know exactly what the law says.
