The Cost of Injury and Ill Health at Work

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has released new figures which show that injury and ill health caused by work costs us a staggering £14.3 billion a year.

Despite Britain being one of the safest countries when it comes to workplace health & safety, some of the key 2014/15 statistics make for surprising reading:

  • 1.2 million people suffered from  work-related illness

  • 142 fatalities at work

  • 76,000 employee injuries reported under RIDDOR

  • 611,000 self-reported workplace injuries

  • 23.3 million days were lost due to work-related ill health and 4.1 million due to workplace injury

  • £14.3 billion was the cost of injuries and new cases of ill health

  • 586 cases were prosecuted by HSE in England and Wales

  • 12,430 notices were issued by HSE and local authorities

The good news is that Park City continues to improve year after year, with employers recognising their legal and moral obligations along with the HSE coming down hard on anyone who is found to be in breach of the law.

Good health & safety management by employers and relevant technical training for employees can help minimise the risk of injury and workplace illness.
