This indicator shows the rate of people per 1000 in full-time work (ie full-time equivalent workers, FTEs) who have been either seriously injured or killed in the course of their work in the last calendar year.

Workplace accidents

This indicator will show work-related injuries per 1,000 full-time equivalent employees.

This measure still needs to be developed.

As a proxy we have information on the rate of people per 1,000 in the equivalent of full-time work (ie full-time equivalent employees, FTEs) who have had a claim accepted for a work-related injury. It is based on workplace claims to the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC).  

Currently, this is the best measure available for work-related injuries.

101 per 1,000
New Zealanders in the equivalent of full time work had a claim accepted by ACC for a work-related injury in 2017.
