Reporting work-related road traffic incidents to HSENI

Date published: 19 January 2015


The Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1997 requires road traffic incidents arising from the movement of a vehicle on the road to be reported, only where either the injured person was engaged in, or a person was injured as a result of:

  • exposure to a substance being conveyed by a vehicle 
  • vehicle loading and unloading activities but not picking up or dropping off passengers 
  • construction, demolition, alteration, repair or maintenance activities on or alongside public roads 
  • an accident involving a train

Work-related dangerous occurrences on public highways, relating to exposure to a substance being conveyed by a vehicle, are covered by RIDDOR, and so too are work-related incidents and dangerous occurrences on private roads.
