COVID-19 Update

We have dramatically reduced our training services but pleased to still offer some training. We can arrange for "critical DVSA tests" for all LGV drivers, including ambulance drivers. We are also able to offer Driver CPC courses online and at a greatly reduced rate.

RIDDOR changes

Changes to the reporting procedure for RIDDOR changed 1 October 2013, but the forms are in the midst of change now. The law requires employers and other people in control of work premises must report and keep records of:

  • work related accidents which cause death;
  • work related accidents which cause certain serious injuries (reportable injuries);
  • diagnosed cases of certain industrial diseases; and
  • certain ‘ dangerous occurrences’ (incidents with the potential to cause harm)

The changes in 2013 were simplification to the reporting requirements in the following areas:

  • the classification of ‘major injuries’ to workers replaced with a shorter list of ‘specified injuries’;
  • the previous list of 47 types of industrial disease is being replaced with eight categories of reportable work-related illnesses;
  • fewer types of dangerous occurrence require reporting.

At present they are currently in the process of updating the suite of RIDDOR forms listed below. As a result of the changes, when an updated form is accessed notifiers will no longer receive an email copy. If a copy is required the option to download pdf copy after the submission. Forms should be all completed by April 2019.

Only ‘responsible persons’ including employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises should submit reports under RIDDOR.

Incidents can be reported online but a telephone service is also provided for reporting fatal/specified, and major incidents only. The incident contact centre number is 0345 300 9923 (opening hours are Monday to Friday 8.30-5pm.
