All work-related deaths in Scotland, in the last five years, have been investigated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

All work-related deaths in the rest of the Great Britain (i.e. England and Wales), in the last five years, have been investigated by the HSE. HSE cannot provide statistics for Northern Ireland as it is not responsible for workplace Health and Safety in this country.

The above work-related deaths are those which are reportable to the HSE under The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR).
