Under the National OHS Strategy 2002-2012, five industries were identified to receive priority attention. Positive results have been achieved in the Construction, Health & community services and Transport & storage industries where reductions in injury incidence rates exceeded 20 per cent. However, the Manufacturing and Health & community services industries recorded only a 16 per cent improvement since the Strategy began. The 13 per cent fall in the Agriculture, forestry & fishing industry was also below expectations. Nationally injury incidence rates have fallen 18 per cent since the Strategy began.
