Women workers and casual employees are injured the most

On a per hour basis, females had a 27% higher frequency rate of injury than their male counterparts. Nearly half (46%) of the injuries incurred by male workers and 43% of the injuries incurred by female workers did not involve any time lost from work.

Working under shift arrangements or as a casual or part-time worker was associated with higher rates of injury. Female workers recorded higher frequency rates in all categories of employment except for full-time non-shift workers where male and female rates were similar.
