Work Health and Safety Statistics 2018

Work Health and Safety Statistics 2018

The latest Work Health and Safety statistics were published last week revealing that, once again, 'falls, trips and slips of a person' were the second most prevalent serious claim.

These claims account for 24% of all serious claims between 2016 and 2017 representing 25,070 claims.

Industries with the most serious claims were:

  • Agriculture forestry and fishing
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing

One of the main causes of slips is inadequate slip resistance of floor surfaces.  There is a safety solution available for just about any floor surface - the correct treatment, sealer and tread nosing (in the case of stairs) will ensure that floors and stairs in the workplace are as safe as possible.
