The Health and Safety Executive has stated that 150,000 non-fatal injuries are reported each year, while, sadly, 200 people lose their lives owing to accident and injury at work. In addition, it is estimated that 2 million people suffer from ill health caused or exacerbated by accident and injury at work.
While some work-related injuries are minor, others have serious consequences, such as time off work, financial and emotional strain, or even permanent disability.
