Figures released on 2 July reveal that the number of workers killed in Britain in work place related incidents last year has fallen to the lowest annual recorded rate.

The provisional data which was released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) indicated that 133 workers were fatally injured between April 2013 and March 2014 - 17 fewer fatalities than the year before.

Health and Safety Executive Chair, Judith Hackitt, said:

“The release of the annual statistics always leads to mixed emotions. Sadness for the loss of 133 lives, and sympathy for their families, friends and workmates, but also a sense of encouragement that we continue to make progress in reducing the toll of suffering.Whilst these are only provisional figures, they confirm Britain’s performance in health and safety as world class.”

Britain has one of the lowest rates of fatal injuries to workers amongst leading industrial nations in Europe at 0.44 per 100,000 workers, compared to 0.51 in 2012/13.

Mike Penning, Health and Safety Minister said:

“Any death at work is a death too many. But these statistics show that workplaces are getting safer.The Health and Safety Executive do an excellent job in making sure each and every one of us can go out to do an honest day’s work in the knowledge that our safety is being taken seriously.”
