The Latest Annual Workplace Fatality Figures 2020/2021 Released by HSE (Health & Safety Executive)
According to their provisional data, 142 workers were killed at work in Great Britain in 2020/2021, which is an increase from the previous year.
Over the last 20 years, there is a ‘long-term reduction’ in workplace fatalities, according to HSE, which still shows Great Britain as being one of the safest places to work in the world.
HSE’s Chief Executive, Sarah Albon, said: “Whilst the working world in which we now live has created new health challenges for workers and for those who have a duty towards them, safety must also remain a priority. Whilst the picture has improved considerably over the longer term and Great Britain is one of the safest places to work in the world, every loss of life is a tragedy, we are committed to ensuring that workplaces are as safe as they can be and that employers are held to account and take their obligations seriously.”
Being struck by a moving vehicle remains number 2 in the HSE list of common causes.
Something as simple as a rear or side camera with a monitor could possibly save lives.
These can be mounted to any vehicle from cars and vans to plant and HGVs.
