The following diagram illustrates the framework for statistics from the Work-Related Injuries Survey. Persons who worked at some time in the last 12 months were asked whether they experienced a work-related injury or illness in the same period.

The survey broadly defined work-related injuries and illnesses as any injury or illness or disease which first occurred in the last 12 months, where a person suffers either physically or mentally from a condition that has arisen out of, or in the course of, employment. See glossary entry 'work-related injury or illness' and appendix 1 for more information.

Included are:

  • injuries or illnesses sustained by all categories of employed workers;
  • injuries or illnesses that have been claimed under workers' compensation; and
  • injuries or illnesses that have not been claimed under workers' compensation.

Work-related injuries or illnesses resulting in death are excluded.
