HSE releases annual workplace fatality figures


Workplace fatalities have been on the decline since the 1980’s, figures for work-related fatal injuries revealed that 147 workers were fatally injured between April 2018 and March 2019.

It remains equally important to look after the health of the workforce by carrying out health surveillance where legally necessary. Many companies focus on the safety side of health and safety and forget or are unsure of the healthy part.

Health surveillance allows for early identification of ill health and helps identify any corrective action needed.

To find out more about health surveillance and whether it is something you should be doing please attend one of our breakfast meetings or our forthcoming course ‘Hand Arm Vibration: How to avoid prosecution’.
