The rate of self-reported work-related ill health showed a generally downward trend but has been broadly flat in recent years. Similarly, working days lost per worker due to self-reported work related illness showed a generally downward trend but has been broadly flat in recent years.
This year has seen a fall in the number of cases prosecuted, continuing the trend from the previous year. The number of notices issued by all enforcing bodies showed a decrease compared to the previous year, continuing the long-term downward trend in notices issued. The level of fine issued in 2018/19 has decreased compared to the previous year. The average fine per conviction is at the same level as 2017/18 so this decrease is related to the fall in the number of cases completed.
