Did you know that in 2019/20 we have lost 111 workers and 92 members of the public due to fatalities related to work?
Despite many efforts, construction is still one of the top high-risk industries. Of those 111 people mentioned, 40 died in construction sites during that period alone (unfortunately, three more people than the previous period), and that does not count those who died of asbestos-related diseases. Data counted between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019.
Stats showed that in 2017, around 5000 people died as a result of asbestos-related disease deaths. That includes mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Think about the people we could have saved over the years,
someone like you and me, a loved one.
