Fatal Workplace Injuries

Figures released by the HSA have shown that the number of fatal workplace injuries is at its lowest since 2009. The figures to date show that the main area of concern is once again the Agricultural sector, with the Construction industry showing a slight increase on the number of deaths also, comparesd to the previous two years. Transportation and Storage is at its lowest fatality rate in a number of years, which is great news for that sector.
