Freedom of Information Request
I refer to your request dated 14 December 2019, which was received by WorkSafe on 14 December
2019, seeking access to Victorian annual statistics from 2000 for the following:
1. The annual number of substantiated or accepted complaints/claims as being work-related injuries
for Victorian workers.
2. The annual number for substantiated or accepted as being work-related injuries for: "psychological
injuries" and "physical injuries". The two figures wil reconcile with the figures in point 1.
3. The annual number of complaints - that were not substantiated or accepted - as being work-
related injuries for Victorian workers.
4. The annual number for complaints - that were not substantiated or accepted - as being work
related for: "psychological injuries" and "physical injuries". The two figures wil reconcile with the
figures in point.
Following a thorough and diligent search of WorkSafe’s record management systems, databases and
relevant business records, I have attached copies of all documentation held by WorkSafe.
If you are not satisfied with this decision, you may seek a review within 28 days of receipt of this
letter to the Information Commissioner at PO Box 24274, Melbourne VIC 3001, or by phone on
