Report an Incident

The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1997, place a legal duty on:

Employers;
Self-employed people;
People in control of premises;

To report work-related deaths, major injuries or over-three-day injuries*, work related diseases, and dangerous occurrences (near miss accidents).

Since 1 April 2013, employers have the option to report all work related incidents to HSENI, no matter who the relevant enforcing authority is for the business.

HSENI, in agreement with district councils, are now offering this new service, in the hope that it will make it easier for employers to report incidents at work. This is especially relevant where it is difficult for an employer to determine who their relevant enforcing authority is. HSENI will process all forms onto its RIDDOR database and, where applicable, forward on relevant forms to the appropriate district council to register and process in the normal way.

While RIDDOR's over 3 day reporting requirement changed in GB on 6 April 2012, the position in NI remains unchanged at present.

These NI2508 forms should only be used to report work-related accidents and dangerous occurrences as defined in the RIDDOR regulations.

Please see Riddor booklet for advice and guidance on these regulations. More detailed guidance is also available here. If you still need assistance please ring us on 0800 0320 121.

Reports of a Flammable Gas Incident or Dangerous Gas Fitting should be reported using RIDDOR forms NI2508G1 & G2 respectiveley which are only available in PDF format for download at present click the linked text to download a copy.

You can download a hard copy of all the reporting forms from here or alternatively report online via the links below. Please note that the links below set a cookie on your computer.
