Analysis of the correlates of self-reported work-related illness in the Labour Force Survey – RR953
Work has long been acknowledged as an important social determinant of health with research being conducted as to how a range of workplace, personal and job characteristics influence occupational health. This report provides an analysis of work related ill-health within the United Kingdom based upon data from the UK Labour Force Survey. Analysis reveals that employment within physically demanding occupations is the key risk factor associated with an individual suffering from a musculoskeletal disorder. Working long hours and employment within managerial, customer service and teaching occupations...
Sickness absence in the UK labour market
In 2011, around 131 million days were lost through absences due to sickness or injury, a fall of around 26 per cent since 1993 where 178 million days were lost (these figures include employees and self-employed, aged 16+, across the whole of the UK).

Review on the validity and reliability of self-reported work-related illness
Self-report is an efficient and accepted means of assessing population characteristics, risk factors, and diseases and is frequently used in occupational health studies. Little is known on the validity of self-reports used to measure work-related illness. This study reviews the evidence on the reliability and validity of workers' self-reported work-related ill health. For epidemiological research, there is an extensive choice in valid and reliable self-report measures on musculoskeletal disorders and mental health problems. The agreement on an individual level between the result of expert assessment...
Statistics on fatal injuries in the workplace 2010/11-HSE
The figures for 2010/11 are, at this stage, provisional. They will be finalised in June 2012 following any necessary adjustments. This arrangement allows for the fact that the investigations of workplace fatal injuries are often complex and can take considerable time. In the course of these investigations new facts can emerge to affect judgements on issues such as whether the accident was work-related or whether the worker was based at the site of the accident. This means that initial views regarding the reportability of the accident or the industrial sector to which it should be assigned can prove...
New figures published of fatally injured workers
New official statistics published today show the number of workers killed in Britain last year has increased. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has released provisional data for the year April 2010 to March 2011, which shows the number of workers killed was 171 an increase on the previous year, when 147 died - the lowest number on record.

Review of the J-value literature – Final report
Completed for HSE by Michael Spackman This report is in response to a request by the HSE to review the 'J-value approach' (Judgement-value). This is a method for objective assessment of health and safety spending, i.e. for comparing the costs and benefits of safety regulation, focusing on its potential contribution to regulatory decision making. The J-value literature may appear to offer an analytical basis for larger numbers for the "values of a prevented fatality" (VPF) and for the valuation of large accident risks, but it does not really offer a way forward. There may however...
