Victorian statistics for work-related injuries

Julie Middleton made this Freedom of Information request to Worksafe Victoria

The request was successful.

From: Julie Middleton

Delivered

Dear Worksafe Victoria,

Safe Work Australia (SWA) has national statistics for workers' compensation claims and the information is limited to serious claims.

I am seeking 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 will 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 will reconcile with the figures in point.

Yours faithfully,

Julie Middleton
