New RIDDOR Regulations from October 2013

The HSE has announced that, from 1 October 2013, subject to Parliamentary review, the law will change, to simplify and clarify the reporting requirements as required by the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) and will replace the existing RIDDOR legislation.

Online guidance is currently being produced which will explain the new requirements, and provide examples of what does and does not require reporting.

A quickstart guide to the new regulations will be available to download from the HSE website in July 2013.
