The OSH profession is well placed to respond to the powerful global forces impacting on the workplace. We hear from some of IOSH’s key players about how the institution is equipping the profession for a dynamic future.
Figures released by the Republic of Ireland's occupational health and safety regulator, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), show that 37 people died in work-related accidents in 2018. This is a 23% decrease on 2017 when 48 workers were killed. The farming sector accounted for the largest proportion of deaths last year - a total of 15 people died - even though workers in this sector make up only around 6% of the total workforce. However, it is significantly lower than the 25 deaths recorded in 2017.
