Ms Smith-Gander encouraged Australians to use the trends, comparisons and industry breakdowns within this publication.

“Understanding the national work-related injury, disease and fatality statistics can help reduce work-related fatalities, injury, illness and disease”, said Ms Smith-Gander.

“I would like those who read this publication to remember that every number in the publication represents a life changed forever.

“While there is a 47 per cent decrease in the national workplace fatality rate since 2007, there were still 191 workplace fatalities and every worker fatality is one too many” said Ms Smith-Gander.
