FATAL ACCIDENTS AT WORK: STATISTICS FOR THE FIRST THREE MONTHS OF 2013

The Health and Safety Executive have released statistics which show that 57 fatalities took place in the workplace in the first three months of 2013.

The most dangerous sector was services followed by agriculture.  (Although given the limited number of people employed in agriculture this is probably quite a frightening statistic).

These figures do not include fatalities that occur on the roads in the course of employment,  or accidents at work at see.
