Course Description

RIDDOR which stands for Reporting of Injuries, Diseases, and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations, puts duties on employers, the self-employed and people responsible for and in control of work premises to report certain serious workplace accidents, occupational diseases and specified dangerous occurrences as well as near misses.

Our RIDDOR course provides a thorough introduction to RIDDOR legislation, explaining why incidents must be reported, which incidents need to be reported and how to submit a report online, by phone or in writing.

This course is essential for the responsible person required to make reports under RIDDOR, however, anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course.

The session is followed by a multiple-choice assessment, designed to test learners’ understanding of the course, allowing delegates to return to the workplace and embed the learning further until deemed competent within their organisation’s guidelines and protocols.
