were tape-recorded in between 2014-15 and 2017-18– the fourth-most per population of Britain’s 11 regions.The number of deaths in workplaces has lowered nationally because the 1980s, and the rate now sits at around a quarter of its average during that decade.Across Britain, an average of 141 individuals have actually died annually in workplaces recently.

Agriculture, which has 28 deaths each year, and manufacturing, with 19, have the next-highest numbers of deaths.But agriculture and waste management are the most harmful markets, with an average of eight and seven employees per 100,000 respectively passing away each
