HSE Workplace Injury Statistics 2019/2020
The most recent data from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) on workplace injuries has shown a downward trend across the board due to the latter part of the 2019/20 period being the height of the pandemic. And while actual financial costs to the British industry remain to be seen for this period, Britain still lost 38.8 million working days due to work-related ill health and non-fatal workplace injuries in 2019/20. A significant and direct hit on employee wellbeing, company productivity and the business bottom line.
Preventing workplace injuries
Regular training for all workers, regardless of their role on the warehouse floor, will educate people to care for themselves and be vigilant in their danger awareness and how such injuries can occur.
Where machinery or specialist knowledge is required, you must deliver the appropriate training here too. For attention and danger notices, safety signage is paramount to keep workflow safe and prevent scenarios such as too many people on a raised floor or improper use of equipment (ladders etc.)
