BCSA accidents reduced by 24%
The accident injury statistics for BCSA members in 2012 has revealed that the number of reportable accidents recorded under Reportable Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) has decreased by 24% in the last 12 months.
“The 24% reduction is a very good result that demonstrates the industry is committed to improving working practices and procedures,” said Pete Walker, BCSA Director of Health, Safety and Training.
“Some of these practices are developed with the BCSA health and safety committee to address the current issues and best practice. They are based on shared experiences and are helping to reduce accidents and injuries.”
Statistics for 2012 show there have been no fatal injuries in the year while reportable injuries have all been reduced including the ‘slips, trips and falls’ category which was reduced by 60%.
