Dear Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland,

I would like to know the total number of people who have died in workplace accidents in Northern Ireland each full year (not financial) for the past five please.

Can you please provide the details in a table under the headings:

Total deaths
Total deaths Antrim/ Armagh/ Derry/ Down/ Fermanagh/ Tyrone
Total deaths in each sector affected please ie. farming, construction, fishing etc

Can you also tell me how many of these cases have been investigated each year by HSENI and total number in which the employer was found to be at fault.

Yours faithfully,
