The hidden cost of industrial workplace accidents

Industrial vehicle injuries affect thousands of workers every year. The Hidden Cost campaign highlights the impact on families and companies worldwide. It offers practical steps to improve safety in industrial workplaces. 

About the campaign
Industrial vehicle injuries are a growing problem

The HSE investigates an industrial vehicle incident every day in the UK. In recent years, the massive increase in the volume and speed of goods passing through industrial facilities have also seen the risks to workers increase.

The Hidden Cost campaign aims to tackle the growing problem of vehicle injuries in industrial workplaces. It does this by raising awareness of the impact of injuries on individuals and businesses and improving industrial safety standards worldwide.
