Introduction to RIDDOR Certification
Reporting accidents, injuries and occupational illness in the workplace allows organisations and authorities to learn how to identify and handle risks. Reports can inform future policy at both a local and national level.

In the UK, the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) decrees how and when people must report specified “reportable instances” to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local government authorities. This course provides an overview of RIDDOR from both a theoretical and practical perspective.
