Highest number of deaths at work in the construction industry during 2022


According to thelandsite.co.uk, the construction industry recorded the highest number of deaths at work, reporting 30 fatalities during 2022.

The total cost of injuries in 2019/20 is estimated at £1.4bn. This accounts for 7% of the total £18.7bn spent on all work-related ill health and injury costs across the UK. The majority of these costs fell upon the injured/ill individuals themselves.

Falling from height is still the main cause of fatal and non-fatal incidents in the construction sector, accounting for half of all deaths on-site, followed by being struck by a moving vehicle. By law workers must be supplied with the correct PPE, receive ongoing safety training and vehicles and pedestrians must be segregated.
