Course Description

Course Code : HSAF2130

Recent figures show that an average of 250 people are killed each year as a result of accidents in the workplace. A further 150,000 sustain major injuries or injuries that mean they are absent from work for more than 3 days. Over 2.3 million cases of ill health are caused or made worse by work. According to the Labour Force survey over 40 million working days are lost annually through work related injuries and ill health, at a cost to business of £2.5 billion. Clearly there are good reasons for investigating accidents.
