Days Lost Due To Workplace Injuries By Occupation In UK

$179 / year

This dataset contains estimates for the number of working days lost due to workplace non-fatal injuries and the rate of working days lost per worker, by occupation, in the United Kingdom. The statistics are calculated by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) based on the Labor Force Survey (LFS) data provided by the Office for National Statistics.

Complexity

Days off work due to workplace injury values are expressed as full-day equivalents, to allow for variation in daily hours worked, and rates are presented in the form of average annual working days lost (full-day equivalent) per full-time equivalent worker. Days lost data for injuries are available annually from fiscal year 2000-2001, with the exception of fiscal years 2001-2002 and 2002-2003, when days lost data were not collected. However, the estimated values in the dataset are presented as three-year and five-year averages to provide a more robust series of estimates.

The self-reported workplace injuries, for which the number and rate are provided, are those sustained as a result of a non-road traffic accident in the last 12 months, with more than 3 and more than 7 consecutive (working and non-working) days away from work (not counting the day on which the accident happened), as estimated by the Labor Force Survey (LFS). Estimates are based on the most recent workplace injury, if the individual has more than one.

Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) is the system used in UK official statistics for classifying workers by the type of job they are engaged in. This has been revised several times, and the LFS has been coded using SOC 2010 starting with the fiscal year 2010-2011, replacing SOC 2000 used since 2001-2002.

With roots stretching back to 1833 the modern HSE is an independent regulator with over forty years’ experience helping Great Britain work well. The Labor Force Survey is a survey of households living at private addresses in the UK. Its purpose is to provide information on the UK labor market which can then be used to develop, manage, evaluate and report on labor market policies. The survey is managed by the Office for National Statistics in Great Britain and by the Central Survey Unit of the Department of Finance and Personnel in Northern Ireland on behalf of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETINI).

Since 1992, the LFS in Great Britain has run as a quarterly survey (fiscal year 1994-1995 for Northern Ireland). The quarterly surveys have until spring 2006 operated on a seasonal quarter basis. However, mostly due to an EU requirement under regulation, in May 2006 the LFS moved to calendar quarters. The 2006-2007 fiscal year data is the first set of HSE data based on the LFS to be affected by this change. The LFS is intended to be representative of the whole population of the UK, and the sample design currently consists of around 37,000 responding households in every quarter. The quarterly survey has a panel design whereby households stay in the sample for five consecutive quarters (or waves), with a fifth of the sample replaced each quarter. Thus there is an 80% overlap in the samples for each successive survey.
