Work-Related Deaths

EDM number 632 in 2009-10, proposed by Katy Clark on 18/01/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Death and Industrial health and safety.

That this House welcomes statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) which indicate that the number of work-related deaths fell to a record low in 2008-09; expresses its concern, however, that the figures used by the HSE do not reflect the true number of people killed by work-related activity as they do not include all those killed by work-related incidents which are not reported to the HSE but to other authorities, and does not include the many thousands who die from illness caused by poor working conditions; estimates that in 2008-09 as many as 1,500 people may have died from work-related incidents and a further 50,000 from work-related illness; believes it is vital for an informed debate that the public are made aware of the accurate number of deaths at work; and calls on the Government to publish annually the total number of work-related deaths and not just those covered by the HSE.

This motion has been signed by a total of 59 MPs.
