  • A new report has revealed UK worker’s attitudes towards safety in the workplace by employees and employers
  • The warehousing industry scores low compared to industry with employees giving their workplace 7.9 out of 10 on average for safety

With many office workers adapted to working from home for over a year, returning to the office is like stepping back into unfamiliar territory and is bound to make you feel uneasy if safety isn’t taken seriously.

The Compensation Experts has revealed the attitudes towards safety in the workplace now that more workers are returning to their place of work.

The report titled ‘The Workplace Safety Index’ surveyed workers in a variety of sectors, revealing their thoughts and opinions on safety in their place of work.

Interestingly, it is not just that they feel safer from the threat of Covid 19.  The report includes workplace machinery, the condition of floors and buildings, and PPE equipment. In almost every area and in every industry, UK employees are feeling safer.

The warehousing industry scores 7.9 out of 10

The report surveyed workers in a variety of sectors, asking them how safe they feel at work. The industry where employees felt the safest was a three way tie between the public service, office work and education, with each gaining an employee safety score of 8.4 out of 10.

Transport and logistics has the lowest safety score out of all of the industries, with employees on average giving a score of 7.5 out of 10 when asked how safe they felt at work.

In general, there seems to be a positive movement since the pandemic in looking closer at employee safety in the workplace, which you can see reflected in the fact 5 out of the 8 industries score higher than 8 when it comes to how safe employees feel.

For the best and worst industries for people feeling safe, see below:

Jonathan Corris Senior Marketing Manager at The Compensation Experts commented on the findings “It’s really excellent to see so many industries scoring highly in this report, with safety measures clearly being taken seriously and workers feeling safe. We hope that workplaces will continue to have procedures in place to making in a safe environment for all.”
