HSE publishes annual work-related ill-health, injury and enforcement statistics for 2020/21

Two new estimates have been developed to measure the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic;

  • 93,000 workers self-reported catching COVID-19 at work; 52,000 of these worked in the human health and social work sector
  • 645,000 workers reported that their work-related illness was caused or made worse by the coronavirus pandemic; 70 per cent of these were cases of stress, depression or anxiety.

According to a report published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), an estimated 555,000 workers sustained non-fatal injuries in 2018.

Workplace health and safety hazards can be costly – to lives and the bottom line – but the good news is that they are largely preventable if you take the right precautions.

There is a long list of things to think about and it all starts with a risk assessment and review.
