Workplace accident statistics released

The Health and Safety Executive recently released the latest statistics on injury and ill-health in the workplace, revealing that an estimated 28.2 million working days were lost due to work related ill health or injury in 2013/14, at a cost to society of an estimated  £14.2 billion.

The statistics show that, in 2013/14, there were;

  • 133 fatal injuries – a fall from 150 the previous year.
  • 77,593 other injuries reported under The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR). That equates to 304.6 injuries per 100,000 employees.
  • An estimated two million people in 2013/14 suffering from an illness they believed was caused or made worse by current or past work.

The industries in which workers are most likely to be injured by their jobs have not changed significantly – with construction (1900 major/specified injuries), agriculture (292 major/specified injuries), manufacturing (3159 major/specified injuries) and waste and recycling (486 major/specified injuries) among the higher risk sectors.
