About the Incident

For injuries or other events you must indicate if the incident is reportable as a RIDDOR dangerous occurrence.
If you are notifying a dangerous occurrence reportable under RIDDOR, you only need to notify the RIDDOR dangerous occurrence and any injuries reportable under ESQCR. The system will not allow you to add RIDDOR reportable injuries to the incident report.
If you are notifying a non-RIDDOR dangerous occurrence, you may add injuries reportable under both RIDDOR and ESQCR.
