Serious claims for disease and injury: Industry

Information about the industry of a claimant’s employer is coded using the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification, 2006.

‘Industry of employer’ relates to the main activity of the organisation where the worker was employed when they reported their occupational injury or disease. It does not relate to where the injury/disease event happened.

Because industry is based on the claimant’s employer, a claim made by someone employed under labour hire arrangements is coded to the labour supply services industry class, which is in the administrative and support services industry.

Industry of employer will be different to industry of workplace for some employees.
