Deaths at Work

The Health and Safety Executive has published its latest Statistics on Workplace injury and Sickness.

These show that in 2005/6, 212 workers were killed at work, 2 million suffered illness  which they believed their work caused or made worse and 328,000 reportable injuries occurred. In addition, over 1900 people died of mesothelioma.

The cost to business (in addition to insurance and settlements in compensation) was 30 million days of employee time lost.
