Under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations, employers, the self-employed and people in control of work premises are required to report certain serious workplace accidents, occupational diseases and specified dangerous occurrences to the relevant authority.

In Northern Ireland incidents should be reported via the HSE Northern Ireland website at:

The HSE are currently in the process of updating their online reporting forms. While the reporting requirements remain unchanged the HSE advise that as a result of these changes, when one of the new forms is submitted the person notifying the incident etc will no longer receive an email copy of the report. There will however be the option to download a pdf of the report immediately after submission.

It is recommended that anyone submitting a report takes a copy.

Please speak to your normal PIB Risk Management contact or get in touch using [email protected]  if you have any questions about reporting incidents.
