Finding out about workplace accidents in 2016 is a good idea if you’re an employer looking to take steps to improve health and safety at your place of work, or if you are a member of staff who has recently been injured in an accident at work. The best place to find statistics relating to 2016 workplace accidents is on the HSE website, where you will also find information about workplace fatalities and other health and safety statistics.
Workplace accidents 2016?
If you have been injured in a workplace accident, or if somebody you love has been killed in an accident at work, chances are you may be eligible to make a personal injury claim. Did you know that from 2015 to 2016, 144 workers were fatally injured in the UK, according to workplace accidents 2016 statistics on the HSE website? Although this figure is lower than the average for the last five years, it is still 144 deaths too many, and it’s clear that more could be done to prevent these fatalities from happening.
Most workplace accidents can be prevented, and it could be that your employer or your partner’s employer has been negligent, leading to their accident and injury or death. If this is the case, Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
