The purpose of investigating reportable injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences is to:
- identify causes and measures required by the employer or self-employed to prevent recurrence;
- take enforcement action where appropriate.
- respond as soon as possible to notifications of fatalities and incidents posing imminent risk to health and safety.
- investigate within 48 hours accident notifications indicating significant breaches of legislation.
RIDDOR is the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995.
Employers, the self-employed and those in control of premises must report specified workplace incidents.
