Report an accident at work
Employers have a duty to report certain types of injury in their workplace. This is under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR).
Only ‘responsible persons’ including employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises should submit reports under RIDDOR.
- report a health and safety incident online
- report an injury, disease or dangerous occurrence to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
Reporting out of hours
The HSE and local authority enforcement officers are not an emergency service.
If you need to report a very serious or dangerous incident such as a work-related death, phone HSE on 0345 300 9923 or Medway Council on 01634 304 400.
