Under RIDDOR it is vital that all ‘reportable’ incidents are reported to the Incident Contact Centre, but it is also very important that all incidents are recorded correctly. These records can help when conducting future risk assessments and can help to prevent further injuries.
Anything that is reported under RIDDOR needs to be recorded. You also need to record any occupational accidents that result in a worker being away from work for more than three consecutive days. (You only need to report these incidents if they result in an employee being away from work for more than seven consecutive days however).
