The request was partially successful.

Dear Royal Mail Group Limited,

As part of a health and safety in the workplace study I would be interested in some of your accident/injury statistics. Ideally for the South Cumbria area, but nationally or whatever region you record these statistics would do for this study.

Hopefully you could provide this in the following categories or something similar (As you record them):
Injuries caused by - Lifting/Carrying
Injuries caused by - Vehicle/traffic
Injuries caused by - Animals (Domestic)
Injuries caused by - Public
Injuries caused by - Equipment at work
Injuries caused by - Other (Or expand the category list)

Yours faithfully,


irgt, Royal Mail Group Limited

Dear Jason,


Thank you for your email received 17 July 2018 within which you enquire
about Royal Mail’s accident/injury statistics, ideally within the South
Cumbria area.


Your request would previously have been considered under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).  However, following the flotation
of Royal Mail on the London Stock Exchange in October 2013 Royal Mail are
no longer obliged to respond to requests for information under the terms
of the Act.  As such, the Information Rights and Governance Team cannot
assist with your request.


The latest published figures regarding Safety metrics can be found in the
2017/2018 Corporate Social Responsibility report at page 48:




Yours sincerely
