HSE fatal injury statistics

The Health and Safety Executive has released figures for fatal injuries in the workplace for the year 14/15.
HSE gives a provisional figure of 142 workers fatally injured in 2014/15. This is a slight increase on the number for 2013/14, which was finalised at 136.
There has been a general downward trend in the rate of fatal injury over the last 20 years, although the trend has become less clear since 2008/09.
HSE is now 40 years old and has existed since the passing of the Health and Safety at Work Act in 1974. The act is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in Great Britain.

“It is 40 years since the Health and Safety at Work Act received Royal Assent, providing a new regulatory framework for work place health and safety in Great Britain. This has helped make Britain one of the safest places in the world to work, saving thousands of lives, preventing many more injuries at work and reducing the economic and social costs of health and safety failures.”

To access the full statistics for fatal injuries in 2014/15, please see HSE fatal injury statistics.
