For perspective, these are good stats with references for overall UK workplace safety, compared to the rest of the EU :
You are 6 times more likely to die at work in France than the UK, for example.
Confirmation bias is discounted
Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.
You may have more luck comparing Japan with the UK. Comparing a comunist controlled country lead by nut cases......oh, wait a minute........
They have an incredable record of civils post natural disaster............

I believe France has no equivalent of the HSE.
Used to deal with a company that specialised in working with Lead.
Group of workers came to the UK plant from France, and refused to set foot on the factory floor until they were issued with their French standard PPE.
Full face masks, with belt mounted filter cannisters.
UK factory, preformed dust masks were optional.
Everyone has full face masks now.
I would imagine you are more likely to die in France as the staff are at work and the UK staff are on a tea break.
