The Lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) calculator is a data tool that helps you compare one aspect of the work health and safety performance of your organisation against industry benchmarks. A lost time injury is an injury sustained on the job by worker that results in the loss of productive work time. The LTIFR is the average number of lost-time injuries per million hours worked for each industry in Australia in each year, regardless of how serious the injury was, so long as it involved some time off work.
LTIFRs are useful for assessing lost productivity and inadequate injury prevention.
We have just updated the data powering the LTIFR calculator so you can now get the latest industry benchmarks, based on our workers’ compensation claims data from 2018-19 to 2020-21 and Australian Bureau of Statistics Labour Force data. We have also expanded the supporting information about the LTIFR calculator so you can use and interpret your rate effectively.
