Workplace major injuries hit an all-time low

Latest HSE figures show an 11 per cent drop in major injuries compared to 2011/12.

Provisional statistics show that in Britain between April 2012 and March 2013:

  • 19 707 major injuries such as amputations, fractures and burns to
    employees were reported (a rate of 78.5 injuries per 100 000 employees) –
    compared with 22 094 in 2011/12 (a rate of 88.5 per 100 000 employees);
  • 148 workers were fatally injured – down from 171 the previous
    year. The average for the past five years was 181 worker deaths per year;
  • Workplace injuries and ill health (excluding work- related cancer)
    cost society an estimated £13.8 billion in 2010/11, compared with £16.3 billion
    in 2006/07 (both in 2011 prices).
