HSE figures have shown that the most non-fatal injuries in work are a result of Manual Handling/falling.

"Non-fatal injuries reportable under RIDDOR include those injuries resulting in over-7-days absence from work or injuries included on a defined list of ‘specified’ injuries. It is known that non-fatal injuries to employees are substantially under-reported by employers, with current levels of reporting estimated at around a half; and the reporting of injuries to the self-employed a much lower proportion."
