Many people are injured in the workplace
The workplace is a significant source of injuries. According to statistics on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website, in the year 2012/2013 somewhere in the region of 646,000 employees were injured while at work.
Fatal injury statistics for the year 2012/2013
In terms of fatalities, there were 148, a figure that relates to approximately 0.5 deaths for every 100,000 workers employed. By way of highlighting the drastic improvement rate in health and safety in the workplace in recent years, this figure is less than half the figure that was recorded under the RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) system, 20 years ago.
Significant improvement in the number of major injuries sustained
The number of serious injuries suffered by employees has also fallen significantly, with 19,707 being recorded in the year 2012/2013, a figure which is approximately 11% down on the previous year.
The most common types of accidents in the workplace
In terms of the kind of accidents that most frequently happen in the workplace, they can be broken down as follows:
- More than half of the fatal injuries were caused by either falls from height, coming into contact with moving machinery, or being struck by a vehicle operating on site.
- Approximately 1 in 12 of fatal accidents are caused by electricity, fire, and/or drowning/asphyxiation.
- In terms of major injuries, over half are caused by slip, trip and fall accidents.
All in all an estimated 3 million working days were lost in total, in the year 2012/2013, because of injuries caused through manual handling and slips, trips and falls.
