Spotlight on: Industry Accidents
Did you know…?
That for the data collection time space of 2012/13, the Health and Safety Executive at Work reported 78,000 injuries to employees were reported under the RIDDOR regulation (1995)?
This is an astronomical amount but far less now that there are a whole swathe of health and safety guidelines and laws in place for work places. Were you one of the 78,000 people hurt?
What is RIDDOR?
It stands for Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations and is a regulation under which an employer (or someone responsible within the organisation) must inform the HSE if someone is hurt or killed.
Reporting under these guidelines will set in motion a whole array of investigations, all of which will have one aim – to stop the accident, illness or disease ever happening again.
This is, of course, necessary and very welcome but what you, the employee that was hurt? Your employer may have promised to ‘look after’ you but what happens if they go out of business at some point in the future or simply stop making payments? What happens then?
