Fewer workplace deaths in last 12 months

Death toll at record low

The Health and Safety Executive has revealed that 212 people were killed at
work in 2005/6, 11 less than last year.

The rate of deaths also fell to an all-time low of about 7 in every million,
with the UK having the lowest rate of workplace fatal injury in the European
Union

The most dangerous sectors to work in were construction and agriculture,
which accounted for almost half of those killed

‘The figures are very encouraging but more needs to be done,’ said Bill
Callaghan, chairman of the HSE.

Callaghan said there were still too many people killed at work every year
