Risks to road workers clearing litter on road network: EIR release

I have observed signs on trunk roads and motorways indicating that 'Clearing litter risks the lives of road workers'. I want to know, how many lives have been lost and how many serious and notifiable injuries have occurred to road workers while litter picking over the past 5 years on the national road network managed by Transport Scotland on behalf of Scottish Ministers?
