The high numbers of accidents and injuries in the workplace
The workplace is, unfortunately, a prolific source of accidents and injuries. Last year alone approximately 646,000 workers were injured in the workplace, which led to 175,000 of them having to take more than a seven-day leave of absence from work, with a further 231,000 taking more than a three-day leave of absence from work. In addition, 148 workers suffered fatal accidents. In terms of major injuries, 19,707 were recorded under the RIDDOR reporting procedure.
The most common types of fatal injuries
As far as fatal injuries were concerned, last year more than 50% were caused by falls from height, or contact with moving machinery parts, or by being in collision with an on-site vehicle.
The most common serious injuries
In terms of serious, but not fatal injuries, slip trip and fall accidents were responsible for over half of all injuries reported, and in terms of the most common injury that forced employees to take more than a seven-day leave of absence, it was some sort of musculoskeletal injury resulting from manual handling. All in all, somewhere around three million working days were lost through manual handling, and slip trip and fall accidents and injuries.
