We can break it down into three key areas. One is deaths, major injury, or being off work. Let us consider the first one, fatalities at work. The three causes. Well, number one falls from height. Number two, hit by moving vehicles. Number three, struck by flying or falling objects. Serious accidents that cause people to be off-work, slips, trips, and falls. Falls from a height, struck by flying or falling objects. The final subject is being off work, usually for more than seven days. Number one is manhandling, slips, trips and falls, struck by flying or falling objects. Now we get an idea as to where, in particular, the health and safety executive will centre much of their education or inspection when going round and visiting sites. But notice what was number one for injuring people, as well as creating deaths, was falling from a height.
