CN's first ever online map of construction fatalities

Construction News has published the first comprehensive online map of construction fatalities to enable firms to learn from where, when and how people are losing their lives in the industry.

The online map, available for free via, displays each construction fatality since 2008/09, colour-coded by year.

Clicking a pin will reveal details including the victim’s name, a brief description of the incident and the date it happened, so you can focus in on your region and compare it with the rest of the country.

The map offers an interactive, at-a-glance opportunity to see where health and safety efforts have been - and should be - focused.

Many points on the map also include links to a fuller story on and these will be updated on a rolling basis as more details emerge post-prosecution.

The map includes every death logged under the provisional HSE stats from 2008/09 to the present day.
