The Department has not commissioned any such research. Over-three-day injuries to young people injured while undertaking practical vocational training within educational establishments are not reportable under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995.
Within such establishments, incidents that result in certain specified major injuries are, however, reportable under RIDDOR. We are aware that under-reporting is generally a problem. The Health and Safety Executive is therefore simplifying publicity material and guidance to make it clearer that reporting is easy to do simply by calling the national incident contact centre.
