Health and safety in waste and recycling in Great Britain, 2013

The information in this document relates to Health and Safety Statistics for 2012/13. The document can be found at: www.hse.gov.uk/statistics/industry/waste-recycling/. There is a general downward trend in the rate of injury over the last eight years, but there is also significant year-to-year variation, especially in the number of fatalities. Injury numbers have been falling for the last four years or longer.
Nevertheless, waste and recycling remains a high-risk industry. Although it accounts for only about 0.6% of the employees in Britain it still accounts for 2.8% of reported injuries to employees (11% fatalities, 2.6% major and 2.8% of over seven day injuries).
