Australia health and safety statistics have been collected since 2003 and are an indication of the safety of Australia’s workplaces. They reveal whether workplace health and safety have improved or deteriorated over time. This is because they show how many claims have been made for injuries and deaths in the workplace, as well as their causes.
It is important to note that these statistics are not static; they change over time due to changes in workplace conditions or industries. It is also important to note that these statistics are not comprehensive; they only cover certain aspects of workers’ lives at work.
Comparing statistics can be a valuable tool for businesses because it provides them with insight into safety performance across different industries.
The following infographic from SafetyCulture illustrates safe work statistics, the state of work health and safety in Australia over a 10-year time period.
