Huge response to RIDDOR survey

14 Mar

Well, since launching our online survey on the government’s proposed changes to the RIDDOR regulations at 12pm on Thursday (10 March) we have received….a whopping 1250 responses at the time of writing.

This is already the largest response we have ever had to an online survey, dwarfing the previous total of 600 who responded to our consultation on the Lord Young review, and it is still early days with the deadline not until 31 March. Not bad you might say, but this goes to show its importance to our readers and members. 

RIDDOR stands for the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations. The government is proposing to extend the amount of time before a workplace accident needs to be reported should be increased from three to seven days – the aim is to ease the administrative burden on employers.

We have surveyed our members to obtain their views. These will help to frame our official response to the consultation. So don’t forget to check out the survey if you’ve not yet done so and let us know what you think – http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TBVF5MX
