The Health and Safety Executive reports that in the year 2016/17, as many as 1.3 million working people in the UK were suffering from a work-related illness, there were over 2,500 deaths due to latent asbestos exposures and over 600,000 injuries occurred in the workplace, of which over 70,000 were reportable serious accidents or injuries, resulting in over 31 million working days lost at an estimated cost of £14.9 billion. Including in their report is the shocking fact that 137 workers were killed at work.
