Safe Work Australia releases injury statistics

Safe Work Australia has released a report outlining some injury statistics affecting Australian workers.  Some of the reports findings include a high prevalence of injury for casual workers, who are 50% more likely to be injured than permanent workers.  The rate of injury for women is also significantly higher than that for men.

The report breaks down incidents by demographics and industry.

The Report is available here: http://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/sites/SWA/AboutSafeWorkAustralia/WhatWeDo/Media/Pages/Higher-injury-rates-for-casual-workers.aspx
