Workers Killed in UK in 2012

Graham Marshall - Thursday, July 04, 2013

The number of workers killed in the UK has fallen in 2012 compared to previous years.

Information released by the UK Health and Safety Executive (UK HSE) tell that 148 workers were killed between April 2012 and March 2013.

This compares with 172 in the same period the previous year.

The UK has had one of the lowest rates of fatal injuries to workers in leading industrial nations in Europe consistently for the last eight years.

But the fact that 148 British workers failed to return home to their loved ones is still a depressing statistic to us at the Risk Tool Box.

The new figures also show the rate of fatal injuries in several key industrial sectors:

+   39 construction workers were killed (1.9 deaths per 100,000 workers);

+   29 agricultural workers were killed (8.8 deaths per 100,000 workers); and

+   10 waste and recycling workers were killed (8.2 deaths per 100,000 workers).
