Injury
statistics – work-related claims: 2019

3 August 2020

Key facts

  • 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.
