  3. 3. WHY WAS RIDDOR INDROCDUED • It was introduced because for HSE and local authorities to monitor accident trends, identifying how risks arise and investigate serious accidents. • The benefit of this was that it would create a safe working environment for employees and bring down incidents at work for the UK as a whole.
  4. 4. Riddor - Injuries The following list provides examples of what RIDDOR considers a major injury: • Fracture other than to fingers, thumbs or toes • Amputation • Dislocation of the shoulder, hip, knee or spine • Loss of sight (temporary or permanent) Riddor act covers injury because its vital that employees are protected from anything happening to them at work. These can vary between many scenarios and injury types.

Diseases at work are common if you're working in industry. Not having the correct training can cause harmful things to happen to your body. Riddor has highlighted this in act so that employees feel safe working around in hazardous areas.
  7. 7. REPORTING RESPOSIBILITES Any accidents or incidents must be reported by the responsible person. The responsible person is normally the employer or the person in control of the premises. To help the responsible person carry out their duties, employers need to be given clear guidelines about reporting accidents and cases of ill health to management. THE ACCIDENT BOOK Whenever an accident (no matter how trivial) occurs on a construction site the following details must be entered in the sites accident book: • The injured persons name, address and occupation • The place where the accident happened • The date and time of the accident
  8. 8. STATISTICS The number of workplace accidents has declined 6% in the four years from 2014/15. DID YOU KNOW? In the 2018/19 reporting year, RIDDOR data shows there were 69,208 company's - reported non-fatal workplace injuries to employees in Great Britain 69 208 NON-FATAL INJURIES

  11. 11. CONCLUSION Coming to conclusion RIDDOR legislation had a massive impact in our opinion. This benefited many workplaces and its employees in the UK. As you saw yourself on the statistic side non fatal injuries numbers was good for workplaces having RIDDOR placed. The 6% decline was great too. However they could do better having a wider foot inside workplaces and maybe cover other situations.
