National Safe Work Month – Healthcare & Social Assistance
The Healthcare and Social Assistance industry is the largest employing industry in Australia, rapidly expanding and projected to continue to do so as the population both grows and ages. However it has a large number of work-related injuries and illness reported each year.
Statistics gathered by the Australian Government statutory body Safe Work Australia between 2011-2012 and 2015-2016 show that the Healthcare and Social Assistance Industry has on average 18,300 serious workers compensation claims each year, with 20% of those by Health Professionals, particularly midwives and nurses. 24% of physical injuries reported were for Muscular Stress while handling objects and 15% from same-level falls.
Actual numbers of injuries are unknown, as only the most serious of injuries are reported. Manage your workplace safety – check your health and safety obligations with the appropriate State & Territory body safeworkaustralia.gov.au/whs-authorities-contact-information.
