Safe Work Australia has released the Key Work Health and Safety Statistics Australia 2018 report.
The report released by Safe Work Australia’s Chair, Diane Smith-Gander on Thursday offers a summary of statistics on national work-related injuries, diseases and fatalities.
Safe Work Australia said the data used in the report has been compiled from jurisdictions, the National Coronial Information Service and the media.
Ms Smith-Gander encouraged Australians to use the trends, comparisons and industry breakdowns within this publication.
“Understanding the national work-related injury, disease and fatality statistics can help reduce work-related fatalities, injury, illness and disease”, said Ms Smith-Gander.
“I would like those who read this publication to remember that every number in the publication represents a life changed forever.
“While there is a 47 per cent decrease in the national workplace fatality rate since 2007, there were still 191 workplace fatalities and every worker fatality is one too many” said Ms Smith-Gander.
