The HSE’s health and safety statistics for 2017 underscore the sheer importance of workplace safety. Whilst massive strides have and continue to be made, reality is safety doesn’t happen by accident. A safe workplace, after all, remains essential for you, your staff and your business. Indeed, it is also a regulatory must.
The latest stats from The Health and Safety Executive show that, in Great Britain, during 2016/2017 :
- 137 workers were killed at work
- 609,000 injuries occurred at work
- 31.2 million working days were lost due to workplace injuries and illnesses
- £14.9 billion is the estimated cost of injuries and ill health from working conditions (2015/16)
