Latest HSE Statistics

New statistics published 1 November

Last Wednesday, HSE published its annual ill-health and injury statistics for Great Britain. The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show:

  • The total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2016/17 was 526,000, a prevalence rate of 1,610 per 100,000 workers. 
  • The number of new cases was 236,000, an incidence rate of 720 per 100,000 workers.
  • The total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2016/17 was 12.5 million days. This equated to an average of 23.8 days lost per case. 
  • In 2016/17 stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 40% of all work-related ill health cases and 49% of all working days lost due to ill health.
  • Stress is more prevalent in public service industries, such as education; human health and social care work activities; and public administration and defence.
  • By occupation, jobs that are common across public service industries (such as healthcare workers; teaching professionals; business and public service professionals) show higher levels of stress.
  • The main work factors cited as causing work-related stress, depression or anxiety were workload pressures, including tight deadlines and too much responsibility and a lack of managerial support .
  • Work-related ill health, injuries and what is now an estimated £14.9 bn cost to the economy have generally followed downward trends over time. The new data confirms the picture seen in recent years that, even if Great Britain continues to have one of the best health and safety records in Europe, most of the indicators are now broadly flat.

The importance of our increasing emphasis on health is reflected by an estimated 1.3 million workers suffering from a work-related illness (new or long standing) in 2016/17. Around 80% of these were musculoskeletal disorders or stress, depression or anxiety, with an estimated 0.5 million cases each. With 12,000 deaths, occupational lung diseases accounted for 90% of the estimated 13,000 deaths linked to past exposures at work (often decades ago). This is why our plans prioritise tackling these areas. Join the Go home healthy campaign, help us spread the word and share your ideas.

More details of these statistics can be found in our stress specific statistics leaflet
