statistics – work-related claims: 2019
3 August 2020
- In 2019, the incidence rate of all injury
claims was 101 claims per 1,000 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs).
This is the lowest rate since the start of the series.
- The Gisborne/Hawke’s Bay region had the
highest incidence rate of claims in 2019, with 146 claims per 1,000 FTEs.
- Workers aged 75 years and over had the highest
incidence rate of claims in 2019, with 174 claims per 1,000 FTEs. However,
the small proportion of people working over the age of 75 years means they
only made up 1 percent of all injury claims.
- This was followed by the 15- to 24-year-old
age group at 133 claims per 1,000 FTEs.
