HSE reporting on injuries at work for 12 months to end March 2011

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) this week announced that the decrease in non-fatal injuries at work had continued during the latest 12-month period to end March 2011. Figures show that 115,379 non-fatal injuries to employees were reported during the period. However, during the same period, fatalities rose by 16% to 171 from a record low of 147 in the previous 12-month period.

The campaign group Families Against Corporate Killers expressed concern that this worrying trend may simply be a sign that many non-fatal accidents went unreported as employees were concerned about job security.
