Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences 

If you are an employer, self-employed or in control of work premises, you will have a duty under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR) to report certain accidents or incidents. This can be done online at the RIDDOR Incident Contact Centre.

Health and Safety Training  

Good health and safety practice makes good management sense. The cost in terms of lost working days, litigation or prosecution can be extremely bad for business.

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) is the UK's leading provider of nationally recognised qualifications in safety. From Levels 1 to 4, CIEH qualifications ensure that workers are appropriately trained in safe working practices.
