Accidents At Workplace: Findings From Ireland On Causes, Types & Frequency Of Injuries

0

Year by year thousands of people are injured at work. Although the level of danger varies from industry to industry, there are many potential hazards to be aware of. Although agriculture, fishing, construction and lorry driving are the most dangerous industries for workplace accidents, there are several ways one can injure oneself even in the supposedly safest environments like in an office. With over 5,000 deaths in Europe last year as a result of accidents in the workplace, accident prevention methods are often overlooked by management. By creating a step by step accident prevention plan, many lives can be saved. In Ireland, the most common accident types are slips, trips and falls, lifting/manual handling, unsafe systems of work, machinery and falling objects. It is interesting to note that 95% of all major slips, trips and falls result in broken bones. Manual handling injuries account for 33% of all non-fatal accidents in Ireland. The guys at Hussey Fraser have created the infographic below that gives us all the facts and statistics you need to know about accidents in the workplace in Ireland and they also provide a guide on what to do when a workplace accident takes place.

Take Advantage Of Cloud Backup Services For Business

Cloud backup

For a long time, the practice of backing up data has entirely taken place onsite. Many companies still store data on tapes and keep it in a secure server room in their business premises for backup purposes. Much has changed though since the inception of cloud backup services.
