HSA release 2013 Fatality Figures

“46 people lose their lives due to workplace accidents in 2013, HSA chief calls for 2014 to be ‘year of farm safety’” HSA Website

The Official Figures released by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) on January 6th 2014 show a decrease of 2 fatalities in the workplace from 2012 figures.

However, this is still 46 persons who lost their lives and 46 sets of families grieving their loved one.

Agriculture remains the sector with the highest number of fatalities with Construction in second place. The Construction Sector recorded an increase for a third consecutive year which is a cause for alarm.

The Safety culture in the Agricultural Sector is said to be too slow in changing and there are calls to try and make 2014 the safest year on farms to date.
