The most common kinds of accident involved with fatal injuries are:

HSE estimates that there are 1.2 million cases of ill health caused or made worse by work, with 22.3 million working days lost due to work-related illness.

Analysis from the Centre of Economic Research predicts workplace absence will cost the UK economy £26 billion by 2030 in lost productivity.

Stress, depression or anxiety and musculoskeletal disorders account for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health, approximately 9.9 and 9.5 million days respectively.

More than a quarter of road traffic accidents are estimated to involve somebody who is at work driving as part of their work at the time.

An estimated 4,000 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease deaths are caused each year due to past occupational exposure to fumes, chemicals and dust.

Work-related noise induced hearing loss affects 15,000 workers each year
