04 Aug Did you know? Britain has the lowest rate of work related fatal injuries in Europe

Health and safety is of paramount importance to a happy and healthy workplace, and Riello UPS works hard to ensure that all employees are safe at work. 

Britain has the lowest rate of work related fatal injuries in Europe – this is something to be proud of.  

However, statistics from the HSE show that much work is still required to further reduce accidents in the workplace, and are clear to emphasise that everyone has their part to play.  

The UK HSE statistics for 2015/16 highlight: 

  • 1.3 million working people suffering from a work-related illness  
  • 2,515 mesothelioma deaths due to past asbestos exposures (2014) 
  • 144 workers killed at work 
  • 72,702 other injuries to employees reported under RIDDOR  
  • 621,000 injuries occurred at work according to the Labour Force Survey 
  • 30.4 million working days lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury  
  • £14.1 billion estimated cost of injuries and ill health from current working conditions 

Unfortunately, the statistics show that much work is still required to further reduce accidents in the workplace. The HSE is clear to emphasise that everyone has their part to play.
