Workers Still at Risk in the UK

Recent statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show that whilst Britain remains one of the safest places to work in Europe, there is still a worrying percentage of those injured or made ill through their employment, with construction, manufacturing and agriculture topping the list of jobs in which staff are most likely to suffer a serious injury.

Injury Statistics

Figures from the HSE found that in 2013/14:

  • 1.2 million people suffered from an illness due to work related issues
  • There were 133 fatalities in the workplace, down from 2012/13 which saw 150 deaths in the workplace 
  • Over 28 million working days were lost due to either work related injuries or illnesses.

What the Figures Represent 

Judith Hackitt, the chair of HSE said: “These latest figures remind us what health and safety is really about. 

“We should remind ourselves what these numbers actually mean – the number of times in the last year someone went out to work and either did not return home to their loved ones or came home with life changing injuries.”

She added: “The health numbers also demonstrate the scale of harm being done to people’s health while at work, too often leading to premature death.
