Industrial Accidents: Foreigners

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 27 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what percentage of workplace deaths of non-British nationals resulted in (a) prosecution and (b) conviction in each of the last five years. (145623)

Workplace deaths are reportable to HSE under RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2005). RIDDOR does not require employers to provide information on the nationality of an injured person. Therefore this information could be obtained only at a disproportionate cost.
