Legislation Update: Health & Safety Executive (HSE)

Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) changes from 1 October 2013

On 1 October 2013 changes were introduced to the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) that will simplify the mandatory reporting of workplace injuries for businesses, while ensuring that the data collected gives an accurate and useful picture of workplace incidents.

To allow businesses time to familiarise themselves with the changes, information has been developed to support duty holders with the requirements. View this information on HSE's Website.

First aid guidance published ahead of regulation changes

On 1 October 2013, the Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 were amended, to remove the requirement for HSE to approve first aid training and qualifications.

The changes are part of HSE's work to make it easier for businesses and other users to understand how to comply with Health & Safety law, whilst maintaining standards. They apply to businesses of all sizes and from all sectors. For more information go to HSE's Website.

H&S ABC – An easy guide to Health & Safety

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has developed a range of tools and guidance to help small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) understand Health & Safety.

If you are an SME, whether new to Health & Safety or an experienced or expanding business, when you see the H&S ABC logo you will know that those tools and pieces of guidance have been specifically designed with you in mind.  The advice available will help you understand what you do and don’t need to do to avoid unnecessary paperwork and effort. Find all the information you will need on HSE's Website.

Health surveillance guidance for employers

Health surveillance allows for early identification of ill health and helps identify any corrective action needed. Health surveillance may be required by law if your employees are exposed to noise or vibration, solvents, fumes, dusts, biological agents and other substances hazardous to health, or work in compressed air. For more information on health surveillance visit HSE's Website.
