WA Work Injury Claims Hit a High

Recent statistics released in WA show that the number of Workcover claims for workplace injuries following serious accidents is the highest it has been in 11 years.

The figures show a steady rise since 2006 and that for each hour two workers are hurt seriously and are required to take a minimum of one day off work. Worker fatalities average out to one every nineteen days.

At the same time the data shows that the claims for minor injuries has dropped each year in the same period of time.
