Post Safety Act fatalities requested


I refer to John Fisher's letter (NCE 12 October) and wonder if he could tell us what changes in the construction industry safety record have been made annually since the Health & Safety Act was enforced - in absolute numbers killed and injured and in proportion to the workforce employed.

It would be interesting to know the similar records for rail and road passengers.
