Construction: Death

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions for what reasons the Health and Safety Executive has ended its publication of a running current total of construction fatalities. (196432)

The Health and Safety Executive does not publish a running total of construction fatalities. Its practice of providing such information to inquirers on request continues, on the understanding that numbers given are unvalidated, and therefore subject to change.

Partially validated statistics on fatal injuries for all industries (including construction) are published on the HSE website on a quarterly basis, as are unvalidated details of fatalities presented in monthly reports made by HSE's Chief Executive to Health and Safety Commission (HSC) meetings.
