Identifying the incidence of electricity-related accidents in Great Britain

This report describes a pan-industry study into the risks associated with electricity-related accidents. This report forms a preliminary evidence base.
A data set has been built containing accidents involving people working with or around electricity. This set contains 57,000 accidents reported under RIDDOR between 1996/97 and 2002/03. This data has been incorporated into the Electricity RIDDOR Report Tool, and is used to provide an insight into the key risks where future risk controls may best be targeted, and a baseline from which future improvements may be measured.
The largest number of electricity-related accidents is reported in the electrical installation and construction industries. Electrical fitters have been involved in significantly more electricity-related accidents than other occupations.

Conception et rénovation des quais pour l'accostage, le chargement et le déchargement en sécurité des poids lourds

Le transit de marchandises entre les camions et les bâtiments doit être effectué à partir de quais de transbordement afin de limiter les différences de hauteur et les reprises de manutention. Des choix inopportuns de conception peuvent exposer le personnel de quai à des risques graves. Destiné aux chefs d'entreprises, ce document propose un certain nombre de recommandations qui seront d'autant plus faciles à mettre en oeuvre qu'elles seront intégrées dès la conception des bâtiments.
