    Work-related injuries in Yorkshire and the Humber released by HSE

    By David Brown on February 6, 2015

    HSE, the Health and Safety Executive, has released the latest information regarding the number of fatalities, work-related injuries and illnesses that have occurred across the working world over the year 2013-14. The figures reveal there were 17 fatalities across the entire Yorkshire region during this period, which is two more than occurred during the previous year. The number of injuries that occurred dropped slightly for the year, with 7,422 injuries recorded in 2013-14 as compared to 7,649 for the previous year.

    The HSE also highlighted the industries that racked up the highest number of fatalities, injuries or illnesses in the workplace for that particular year. The industries that are logged as potentially being the most dangerous in this sense include the construction industry and the manufacturing industry. These industries tend to involve more instances of people working at height and working with various types of machinery, both of which can potentially be dangerous. Indeed, these areas were among those highlighted by the HSE as being particularly important to maintain, manage and assess in order to reduce figures in the future. All in all the HSE is highlighting the work that can still be done in order to keep all employees safe from potential harm in the future.

    Are work-related injuries in Yorkshire very common?

    Despite these figures only a very small proportion of everyone in Yorkshire – and elsewhere in the country – will ever suffer any type of injury or illness at work. Fatalities are even rarer. However as anyone who has been through this situation will know, an injury can have a profound effect on their future prospects. The majority of businesses take their responsibilities in this area very seriously indeed, and keep their workers safe in every way.
