Return on investment of interventions for the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal
There were two key objectives for the work: - To conduct a literature review to identify which interventions are cost-effective in reducing the complications associated with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee, neck pain or back pain; - To develop an ROI tool that allows the resource and financial consequences of implementing these cost-effective interventions nationally and at local levels.

Mesothelioma Mortality by Geographical Area
Mesothelioma mortality in Great Britain 1981-2015 Previous descriptive analyses of mesothelioma death rates for geographical areas within Great Britain have highlighted the effect of geographically-specific sources of asbestos exposure: geographical areas with the highest mortality rates tend to be those known to contain large industrial sites such as shipyards and asbestos product factories. This factsheet provides an update of analyses of mesothelioma mortality by Unitary Authority (UA) and Local Authority (LA) area to include deaths occurring during the period 1981 to 2015, the longest period...
Fatal injuries arising from accidents at work in Great Britain
Headline results 2016/17 This report provides headline numbers on workplace fatal injuries that were reported to enforcing authorities in 2016/17. It includes both fatal injuries to workers and to members of the public. The 2016/17 figures are currently provisional, and marked as ‘p' and will be finalised in July 2018 to take account of any necessary adjustments. Fatal injuries are thankfully rare events. There is a degree of chance and randomness to the annual count resulting in an element of natural variation from one year's count to the next. To allow for this natural variation...

Work-related and Occupational Asthma in Great Britain 2016
Work-related asthma describes all adult asthma where there is an association between symptoms and work, including work-aggravated asthma and a smaller numbers of cases of occupational asthma often caused directly by exposure to respiratory sensitisers in the workplace. The latest information shows: - There are currently an estimated 14,000 (95% confidence interval: 10,000 – 17,000) new cases of “breathing and lung problems” each year caused or made worse by work according to the Labour Force Survey (LFS). A substantial proportion of these may be work-related asthma. - Annual numbers...

Modelling the economic impacts of an accident at major hazard sites
This report documents the development, implementation and results of a model to estimate the economic costs of accidents at major hazard sites in Great Britain, focusing on the impacts of the accident, and taking into consideration a broad spectrum of losses. A catastrophe-modelling type approach was used to structure the work, based around model components for hazard, vulnerability and economic cost. The model was developed by the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton (HSL) with further input from the Welsh Economic Research Unit at Cardiff Business School and HSE, and used the COCO-2 model developed...

Violence at work
The number and incidence rate of violent incidents at work has declined over the last decade. Findings from the 2013/14 Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) show that: - the risk of being a victim of actual or threatened violence at work is similar to the last five years with an estimated 1.1% of working adults the victims of one or more violent incidents at work (CSEW) - in 2013/14, the survey estimated 257 000 adults of working age in employment experienced work related violence including threats and physical assault - there were an estimated 583 000 incidents of violence at work according...
Work-related ill-health: Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Great Britain 2005–2012
New research published in the scientific journal Occupational Medicine shows that throughout the British Isles, mental health disorders are the most common work-related ill health problem. They account for over half of all cases reported by occupational physicians. The researchers led by a team from Manchester University, studied data across three surveillance schemes from 2005 to 2012. It is the first time that a study has investigated the incidence of work related ill health and compared detailed data across Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Musculoskeletal disorders...

National survey of the burden of sickness absence in the waste and recycling industry
The aim of the project was to provide HSE and the industry with reliable estimates of rates of sickness absence for specific categories of ill health and for key work tasks undertaken by workers. 32 different organisations provided data on the spells of sickness absence taken by their workforce, 28 local authorities and four private sector organisations, collectively employing approximately 7700 workers. The contribution of local authorities and private sector organisations to the total person years of follow up in the study was 41% and 59% respectively. Data was collected on 17,613 spells of absence...
Fatal accidents and injuries among merchant seafarers worldwide
BACKGROUND: The British merchant fleet has expanded in recent years but it is not known whether this expansion has led to proportionate changes in mortality. AIMS: To investigate mortality from accidents and injuries in British merchant shipping, to determine whether this has increased in recent years, to compare fatal accident rates across British industries and to review fatal accident rates in merchant shipping worldwide over the last 70 years. METHODS: Examinations of marine accident investigation files, death registers and death inquiry files, national mortality statistics, worldwide surveys...
Exposure to Lead in Great Britain 2014
There was an overall reduction in the number of British workers under medical surveillance for work with lead over the past decade. Women have consistently accounted for a small proportion of the total under surveillance, and the number of young people (under 18 years) under surveillance remains low. The most recent medical surveillance data show: - The total number of workers under medical surveillance fell by 47% from 7949 in 2011/12 to 4240 in 2012/13 - The industry sector with the highest number of males under surveillance was the lead battery manufacture sector, with numbers similar to previous...

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...

Follow-up and assessment of self reports of work-related illness in the Labour Force Survey - RR970
The Labour Force Survey (LFS) provides estimates of the scale and distribution of work-related ill health conditions across Great Britain. Given its reliance on the self-reporting of these conditions it is of interest to get a better understanding of the nature of the relationship between work and the illness, the characteristics of respondents, details of the conditions reported and the effect they have on individuals’ lives. The Work- Related Illness Survey was a multiple stage project designed to acquire this further detail. A sample of respondents reporting an illness in the 2010 LFS...
Occupational fatality risks in the United States and the United Kingdom
Background There are very few careful studies of differences in occupational fatality rates across countries, much less studies that try to account for those differences. Methods We compare the rate of work injury fatalities (excluding deaths due to highway motor vehicle crashes and those due to violence) identified by the US Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries in recent years with the number reported to the Health and Safety Executive in the United Kingdom (UK) and by other European Union (EU) members through Eurostat. Results In 2010, the fatality rate in the UK was about 1/3 the rate in the...
