Falls from height data shows we need to simplify reporting



AIF calls for clearer reporting of workplace accidents

In addition to employer-reported RIDDOR incidents, the HSE estimates the scale of non-fatal workplace injury using its preferred source, the self-reported Labour Force Survey (LFS). According to the LFS, the number of falls over the last 10 years may be up to 425,000. Along with the lives, families and businesses affected by these accidents, up to 992,000 working days were lost through non-fatal falls from height in Great Britain last year alone.
