HSE stresses importance of workplace safety

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has reiterated the importance of safety procedures and personal protective equipment such as head protection after publishing its list of workplace injuries for the last 12 months.

Although the rate of fatal injury remains the same, at 0.6 per 100,000 workers, HSE chair Judith Hackitt urged British employers not to get complacent about their success.

"We want employers to focus on the real risks that continue to cause death and serious injury," said Ms Hackitt, indicating that the HSE intends to continue helping companies identify areas in which they can improve.

"Protecting people from death and serious injury at work should be at the heart of what we all do," added the HSE chief.

Agriculture, waste and recycling and manufacturing continue to be some of the most dangerous sectors in the UK.

The organisation recently warned construction industry workers to ensure all safety procedures are carried out when working above ground level.
