I'm no expert, but 38,000 seismic events from one test site does seem quite a lot?

A lot more detail here

It all depends on the magnitude, with just about all the reported events being more an indication of how good monitoring equipment has now got.

Taken from Wikipedia

Richter arbitrarily defined the zero point of the scale to be where an earthquake at a distance of 100 km makes a maximum horizontal displacement of 0.001 millimeters (1 Ám, or 0.00004 in.)

The UK rules have been set that anything over 0.5ML causes a stoppage, it is good that these rules only affect fracking as any process involving pile driving would be off limits (so forget onshore and nearshore wind farms, HS2, or any large building work) and even HGVs driving down a poorly maintained road could cause such shocks.

The UK government seems to have allowed fracking, but set rules and regs to make sure that it never happens.
