Graham Marshall - Monday, November 04, 2013

The latest United Kingdom OHS statistics for 2012 - 2013 have just been published by the UK Health and safety Executive (UK HSE)

The UK HSE statistics includes the following key annual figures:


•  148 workers were killed at work during the previous year;
•  78,222 injuries to employees were reported. Due to changes in legal reporting requirements it is not possible to compare directly with previous years although statistical analysis suggests a downward trend is continuing;

•  175,000 reportable injuries leading to over-7-day absence occurred;

•  5.2 million working days were lost due to workplace injury.  This figure equates to an average 8.1 days per injury;
•  In 2011, there were 2,291 Mesothelioma deaths caused by past exposure to asbestos;

•  The number of Mesothelioma deaths is expected to continue to increase in future years before peaking in 2020;

•  13,503 enforcement notices were issued by the UK HSE and local authorities; a decrease of 15 per cent from the previous year;

•  The UK HSE completed 597 prosecution cases (covering 973 offences) and secured a conviction in  95per cent of cases; and
