- Change reporting threshold from over 3-days to over 7-days
SSS stance: In favour. This reduces the workload on industry and removes the confusion when 3 days includes a weekend. However, data will be lost and there is the danger that 3 days will be regarded as not serious.
- Include a requirement to investigate reportable incidents
SSS stance: In favour. All incidents must be investigated, but this must be to an appropriate level.
- Include travelling on company business as a work activity
SSS stance: In favour. Travelling on company business can be a serious source of incidents.
- Improve the sharing of information from the HSE
SSS stance: In favour. It's been a long-standing gripe of ours that the HSE do not share all this information that RIDDOR brings in.
