    Have you got a workplace accident story to share?

    Have you got a workplace accident story to share?

    People who have had an accident at work are being told they can do their bit to help the same thing happening to someone else.

    The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is planning to mark Workers Memorial Day on April 28 by publishing personal accounts of workplace accidents and the effect they had on people’s lives.

    ‘Aim is to prevent future accidents’

    The charity is calling on victims and employers, as well as relatives and friends, to share their stories so they can be published on its website.

    RoSPA hopes the exercise will raise awareness and help prevent others being killed, injured or made ill at work by similar incidents in the future.

    The charity’s occupational safety and health policy adviser, Dr Karen McDonnell, says although the UK’s workplace safety systems are admired around the world there is no room for complacency.

    ‘Keep issue in the spotlight’

    She says people can help prevent future accidents by sharing their experiences of what happened to them or someone they know.

    That will help keep the workplace health and safety in the spotlight and ensure it remains a top priority for both employers and their workers.

    Stories can be shared via RoSPA’s website.

    Figures show that in 2013/14 133 were killed at work in the UK. Thousands more were injured and around 1.2 million workers suffered from a work-related illness.
