Employers should focus on introducing effective health and safety procedures following startling workplace injury statistics.

This is the message from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which revealed that the number of deaths in the UK failed to show a substantial fall in 2011/12, with 23,000 suffering a major injury during the time period.

Last month, the HSE warned farmers to focus on protecting their wellbeing while using machinery at work, recommending that all products should come with safety features.

Rosi Edwards, HSE's regional director for the midlands, said: "When put into this kind of context, it is clear why health and safety in British workplaces needs to be taken seriously. I urge employers to tackle the real dangers that workers face rather than focussing on the trivial or mire themselves in pointless paperwork."

Ms Edwards explained that reducing the number of deaths and major injuries in 2013 is her "New Year wish".ADNFCR-2754-ID-801515085-ADNFCR
