The HSE have issued the following statement:
“From 6 April 2012, subject to Parliamentary approval, RIDDOR’s over three day injury reporting requirement will change. From then the trigger point for reporting injuries to HSE will increase from over three days’ to over seven days’ incapacitation (not counting the day on which the accident happened). However, under EU law, businesses will still be required to keep internal records of incidents resulting in an absence of over three days.”
