Health and Safety Statistics

The systematic collection and analysis of data to monitor health and safety performance and to identify emerging risks is critical for the effective functioning of the Authority.

We use statistical information to plan our Programmes of Work and inspection schedules.  Statistics are prepared for advisory committees, regional working groups and for conference presentations and press releases.  We also provide statistics in response to queries from industry, researchers, students and other members of the public. 

Our injury data is collected in line with a European-wide methodology (ESAW) and accident reports are submitted to Eurostat (Statistical Agency of the European Commission) on an annual basis for the preparation of European comparator statistics.

A wide range of statistical information is available in the Authority’s annual Statistics Summary.  Requests for additional information should be submitted to the HSA Contact Centre.
