The Price of a Worker's Life


There is a practice of paying executives health and safety bonuses if none of their employees dies on the job. 

Research by the shareholder advisory firm Pensions & Investment Research Consultants, looked at annual reports from 38 FTSE 350 companies in which at least one person died at work between 2015 and 2019.

It found docking their top executive’s bonus led to an average cut of £33,628 – the equivalent of less than 1% of the executive’s total annual pay.
