Do you know the facts about workplace injuries in the UK?
Under UK law, employers are bound to provide a safe work environment for employees at all times. Despite there being plenty of legislation in place to impose this, the startling facts about workplace accidents in Britain reveal the truth:
- In 2011/2012, 172 employees were killed at work
- Over the same period, there were over 111,000 injuries reported under RIDDOR
- Over 1.1 million people were living with a work-related illness in 2011/2012
These statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) clearly show that although employers are legally bound to provide a safe work environment, many of them are failing to do so.
