According to the HSE Workplace transport injuries affected 4,956 people and included 55 fatalities. These include overturning, being hit by falling objects, falling from a vehicle or being hit by a vehicle. 24% are from fork lift trucks. The larger the vehicle the higher the chance that an injury is classified as major.
The HSE states that an estimated 629 000 workers had an accident at work in 2013/14.
Over half of the the fatal injuries to workers were as a result of : falls from height; contact with moving machinery; and being struck by a vehicle. This should not still be happening. A zero harm culture benefits everyone.
Falls and slips & trips account for over a third (35%) of employee injuries. They made up more than half of all reported major/specified injuries and almost three in ten (29%) over-seven-day injuries to employees.
An estimated 1.9 million working days were lost due to handling injuries and slips & trips and resulted in lost income. If you are injured at work due to your employers negligence you are unlikely to be paid whilst you are absent and cannot claim benefits. You are likely to get into debt and need advice to get you back to work as soon as possible.

“I was at a loss before I phoned Chris. I hadn’t worked for 4 months due to my broken leg after my fall from scaffolding. He got me my wages back whilst I had physiotherapy. I was then able to go back to work whilst he settled my claim for £12,500.” Mr Jones, Huyton
