Dear Health and Safety Executive (HSE Safety & Enforcement Statistics team).

I would like to make a Freedom of Information request on how many accidents and injuries have occurred at public and private Fitness Facilities/Leisure Centres/Gyms (SIC code: 93130) over the last 10 years due to failure to follow the Health and Safety Guidelines issues by the H&SE.

I'd like the breakdown split:
- By year
- By Staff/Employee
- By Public/Private
- By Severity

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Robinson

Health and Safety Executive
