Accidents are taking their toll on employees across the UK – and costing companies thousands of pounds a year.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, trips, slips and falls have halved in the past two decades, but remain a clear and present danger, especially in workplaces containing heavy machinery or dangerous chemicals.
A slew of accidents
In 2014/15, there were approximately 76,054 reported accidents to employees in the workplace. These included everything from slips, trips, falls and much more, and created 4.1 million working days lost by companies (approximately 6.7 days per case).
Not only will this lead to a decrease in productivity (and, in turn, profits) for your business, but flouncing safety regulations in your workplace could leave your enterprise open to legal disputes from injured employees.
High-profile cases like Sports Direct – which has been responsible for a slew of abuses against its employees, leading one MP to compare it to a ‘Victorian workhouse’ – shows just how easy it is for a lazy company to fail its workers.
