Falling from a height remains one of the main causes of injury
The number of people killed or injured in work-related incidents across Cumbria has fallen, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
The 2008/2009 toll of 1,232, which includes one death, is a fall of 154 on the previous 12 months, during which three people died.
Carlisle saw the highest number of incidents, with 342 workplace injuries. The death occurred in South Lakeland.
The HSE is urging employers and staff to reduce incidents further.
David Sowerby, the HSE's North West operations manager, said: "Most of these injuries are entirely preventable.
"We implore businesses to take practical action to manage the risks people face in their day-to-day work."
Across the North West, 16,385 people suffered workplace injuries during 2008/09, of which 22 were fatal.
