New figures show extent of workplace safety failings in local area

Written Ministerial Statements: Thursday 28 January 2010
The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (Yvette Cooper):
I am pleased to announce the publication of the Government's response to the consultation exercise proposing the official recognition of Workers Memorial Day.
The Government's response (Cm 7789) has been laid before Parliament and is available on the DWP website.

Every year more people are killed at work than in wars. Most don`t die of mystery ailments, or in tragic `accidents`. They die because an employer decided their safety just wasn`t that important a priority.

Worker`s Memorial Day takes place every April 28th - as an international day of remembrance and action for workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work.
