Monitor a Safe Workplace
Although there has been a gradual reduction in compensated work-related injuries and fatalities since the beginning of the century, the numbers are still too high. In 2006-07, there were 132055 serious workers compensation claims and 236 compensation fatalities in Australia. It is estimated that a further 2000 die from work-related disease. There are over 15 occurrences of serious injury every hour, and more than 1.2 million working weeks are lost every year because of safety-related incidents. The social and economic costs are immense.
