Out now: HSE's Health and Safety Statistics 2015

The Health and Safety Executive has released its annual health and safety statistics on work-related injury, ill health, enforcement and costs in Great Britain.

The latest figures show that more than a million people are being made ill by their work, costing society £14.3 billion.

Despite Britain remaining one of the safest places to work in Europe, injury and ill-health statistics released by HSE show that an estimated 27.3 million working days were lost due to work related ill health or injury in 2014/15.

In the same year 142 workers were killed, and there were 611,000 injuries in the workplace.

Of the estimated 1.2 million people who suffered from a work related illness, 516,000 were new cases.

To enable health and safety professionals to easily educate employees about the consequences of poor health and safety, HSE Books has produced an infographic-style poster which visualises the key information of the 2015 statistics.
