The monthly notifiable fatality report provides a national summary of work-related traumatic fatalities that were notifiable to Australian work health and safety jurisdictions. Besides providing an estimate of the number of work-related deaths, the report also includes details of the types of incident involved; the industry of the workplace at which the fatalities occurred; and the industry of the decedent’s employer.

Although only the most recent report is usually presented, the December 2016 report has been retained since it includes previous monthly counts. However, comparisons between yearly monthly counts should be made with caution since, by agreement with jurisdictions, the reporting of incidents on public roads in 2012 and onward are more comprehensive.
