Further guidance on RIDDOR reporting of COVID-19Further guidance on RIDDOR reporting of COVID-19

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has updated the guidance for reporting cases of Covid-19. Providers should follow the RIDDOR reporting of COVID-19 guidance on what to report.

This guidance has been developed to assist responsible persons in determining whether reports need to be made for cases of Covid-19.

HSE has decided that it no longer requires a diagnosis of Covid-19 to be confirmed by a registered medical practitioner before a report is made under RIDDOR. Responsible persons should consider any official confirmation of COVID-19 infection such as from a public testing body as being equivalent to a registered medical practitioner's diagnosis.

The advice above applies in England, Scotland and Wales.
