Updated RIDDOR guidance

The Health and Safety Executive has issued guidance on (The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013) RIDDOR reporting of COVID-19 for employers. The guidance can be found here: https://www.hse.gov.uk/news/riddor-reporting-coronavirus.htm

Essentially, there is a requirement to  make a report under RIDDOR  when:

  • an unintended incident at work has led to someone’s possible or actual exposure to coronavirus. This must be reported as a dangerous occurrence.
  • a worker has been diagnosed as having COVID 19 and there is reasonable evidence that it was caused by exposure at work. This must be reported as a case of disease.
  • a worker dies as a result of occupational exposure to coronavirus.
