The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is undertaking a post-implementation review (PIR) of The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) which were issued in 2012 and 2013. As part of this review we are seeking the views of both stakeholders (such as fellow regulators) and duty-holders. HSE would therefore like your help in capturing how local authorities (LAs) complete RIDDOR reports as a health and safety duty-holder. 
There have been a number of changes to RIDDOR over the last five years. These have included:
- Only needing to complete a RIDDOR report where the worker has been off for more than 7 days (the previous requirement was over 3 days absence) (RIDDOR 2012);
- The classification of ‘major injuries’ to workers being replaced with a shorter list of ‘specified injuries’ (RIDDOR 2013);
- The previous list of 47 types of industrial disease being replaced with eight categories of reportable work-related illness (RIDDOR 2013); and
- Fewer types of dangerous occurrence require reporting (RIDDOR 2013).
HSE is interested in the impact of these changes and whether they have succeeded in meeting their objectives of simplifying and clarifying the RIDDOR reporting requirements and reducing the burden of RIDDOR reporting. 
HSE also wants to understand:
* The economic impact of the changes (in terms of time taken to complete and submit RIDDOR reports);
* Areas of possible concern (over-reporting and under-reporting); and
* Whether RIDDOR helps you and your organisation improve your health and safety. 
To this end, can you please spare 5 to 10 minutes to quickly answer the following 12 questions, and return your response to us by 12 noon on Wednesday Friday 26th April 2017. All responses will only be reported in an aggregated format.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact Miles Burger on 01298 218764 ( or Nick Johnson on 0203 028 3215 (

Many thanks for all your help.
