There have been reports about the slight fall in accidents/fatalities at work. Obviously the celebration of less accidents is normally to be clebrated but this report by Unite shows that there has been a significant drop in HSE investigations for a variety of reasons.
This is completely unacceptable.
The Government has to ensure enough resources for the HSE to investigate all workplace accidents and injuries. There has to be a halt to any cutbacks in the power of the HSE to do its job and where necessary to prosecute dangerous employers.
