Consultation description

This consultative document contains proposals for the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2014.

The primary aim is to simplify the RIDDOR reporting requirements and ensure the continued availability of information required for effective regulation whilst removing reporting requirements for data which is rarely used, or could be otherwise obtained.

The consultation also re-introduces a proposal to extend the period for reporting injuries that lead to a worker being incapacitated for work from over three days to over seven days.
