Did you know that HSE investigates over 200 incidents per year?
While Great Britain remains one of the safest places to work in the world, unfortunately workplace incidents occur on a regular basis. In 2020, HSE investigations included: the Erith oilseed factory explosion (June); the Bow tower crane collapse (July); the Bingley ‘scissor lift’ incident (November); and the Avonmouth water recycling plant explosion (December). In all these tragedies, individuals sadly lost their lives or were seriously injured.
HSE’s mission is to prevent work-related death, injury and ill health. They share the knowledge they learn from investigating incidents such as these via their research reports, the free information and guidance they make available on the HSE website and via the products, training, testing and research and consultancy services they offer to organisations to help them learn and improve so that they can prevent the same things from happening to them.
