Australian Workers’ Compensation Statistics 2011-12
This is the 20th annual report that uses the National Data Set for Compensation-based Statistics (NDS). This new edition replaces the previous Compendium of Workers’ Compensation statistics series.
The report also introduces a new definition of serious claims that is in line with the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 targets. Serious claims are those that result in absences from work of at least one week.
Key findings from the report include:
- there were 120 155 accepted workers’ compensation claims for serious injury or disease,
- males accounted for 64 per cent of serious claims in 2010-11
- the average age of an employee with a serious claim was 42 years old, and
- the highest incidence rate of serious claims by industry was recorded by the Agriculture, forestry & fishing industry (21.3 serious claims per 1000 employees)—nearly double the national rate of 11.4.
