  • take enforcement action where appropriate.

We will:

  • respond as soon as possible to notifications of fatalities and incidents posing imminent risk to health and safety.
  • investigate within 48 hours accident notifications indicating significant breaches of legislation.

RIDDOR is the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995.
