Health and safety is as prominent as it has ever been in the workplace, however there is simply no way of eliminating accidents completely.
In this country there are many dangerous lines of work which you would naturally expect accidents in. These include such sectors as manufacturing where heavy and powerful machinery is being used, the construction and building sector where people are working in high or dangerous locations and in the agricultural sector where highly dangerous machinery is used every day without much supervision.
Cycling is a pastime that is soaring in popularity. Not only are people using cycling to keep fit and get outdoors but many are also substituting their cars to cycle to their place of work. But is cycling in the UK as safe as it could be?

In particular, London has seen a huge increase in hire bikes and cycling lanes under the guidance of former Mayor Boris Johnson.
