Millions of Working Days Lost Every Year: Why Health and Safety is Relevant to All Workplaces
Many people are aware of the tragic numbers of Mesothelioma deaths due to past asbestos exposure or that working at a height or in confined spaces is highly dangerous and needs to be risk assessed. However, Health and Safety courses cover plenty of topics alongside these important subjects. These range from Fire Safety, Trips and Falls, Manual Handling, Work-Related Stress and many more issues which affect all types of workplaces.
Did you know that 30.4 million working days were lost in 2015/16 due to work-related illness and non-fatal workplace injuries in 2015/16?*
Or that 0.5 million workers were suffering from work-related musculoskeletal disorders?
Not forgetting the 0.5 million workers who were suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety last year?
The repercussions of this can have a drastic impact on your business. 25.9 million working days were lost due to work-related illnesses.
