The Health and Safety Authority’s annual Summary of Statistics presents the most frequently sought information and statistics on occupational injury, illness and workplace fatalities in Ireland. Ease of access and interpretation is key in our approach to publishing the statistical summary.
The programme of work for 2012 has now been published. Find out about HSA activities and priorities for the year
This plan sets out the objectives and priority actions for the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) in implementing its service initiative, the three year Taking Care of Business (TCB) programme (2011– 2013)
The annual Summary of Statistics aims to provide information on some of the most common queries on occupational injury, illness and workplace fatalities. Data from different sources is combined to facilitate the review and monitoring of trends across a range of factors related to workplace injury and illness.
2010 saw an increase in workplace deaths from their all-time low of 43 in 2009 to 48 in 2010. 60% of these deaths occurred in the farming, logging and fishing sectors, sectors that account for about 6% of the working population. The Annual Report 2010 outlines the key achievements and activities of the HSA for the year.
This programme for 2011 is the second year of our strategy for the period 2009 to 2011. It occurs at a
time of significant change for the Authority, for the economy and for employers and employees.
