Please detail the number of incidents that were communicated by the University of Dundee to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurances Regulations 1995 and 2013 (RIDDOR 1995 and 2013) per School/College and Division in each of the years 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
