In the year 2010 - 2011 the HSE estimated that 1.2 million people in the UK were suffering from work-related illnesses. In the same period 175 workers were killed in their workplaces and over 200,000 injuries resulting in three or more days of work. The HSE estimate that 26.4 million working days were lost and that workplace illness and injury cost the UK economy £14 billion in the year 2009 - 2010.

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimated that internationally there were over 300,000 work related fatal accidents and over 2 million fatal cases of work related disease in 2008.

A recent survey carried out by The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work found that 86% of those surveyed (n=36,000) felt that to be economically competitive workplaces needed to follow good health and safety practices.

Much of the human suffering and finacial loss caused by occupational illness and injury can be avoided by recognising the hazards that exist in the workplace and implementing simple control measures to reduce the risk from those hazards.

With his wealth of experience as teacher, university lecturer, researcher and independant consultant, Terry McDonald can help you meet the challenge of controlling risk from the hazards in your workplaces.
