Employers will be able to report injuries to employees, required under RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995), online from 12 September 2011.

The following forms should be used:

However, employers can still report incidents over the telephone to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), but its Infoline will cease on 30 September 2011, as it's envisaged that information and advice previously given by 'phone can be accessed via the HSE website.

The HSE said more than half of reportable injuries are already notified to HSE through its website and this proportion has been increasing steadily over the past seven years.

It recognises, though, that people reporting fatal and major incidents and injuries will still want to do so by 'phone.
