Workplace Health and Safety Laws and Issues in Australia (Responsibilities of Employer/Employees)
Each year, 650,000 workers suffer a work-related injury or illness. That's one in every 12 Australian workers. At least 120,000 of these injured or ill workers require more than five days off work.
It is also estimated there are at least 2,900 work-related deaths in Australia each year. This is nearly one and half times the number of deaths each year from motor vehicle accidents. Each year, around 430 fatalities occur in Australian workplaces as a result of traumatic accidents - the remainder of deaths are linked to work-related diseases, often the result of exposure to hazardous substances many years before.
Economic losses from work-related deaths, injuries and disease impose a heavy burden on the Australian economy. The total cost of that workplace injury and disease is estimated at $27 billion each year. High worker's compensation and medical costs can reduce your company's ability to compete.
