Priority Mechanisms Fact Sheet

In an effort to reduce the number of work-related injuries, Safe Work Australia is focusing on reducing the number of injuries due to manual handling (body stressing), falls and being hit by or hitting an object. Analysis of most recent workers’ compensation data indicates that the incidence rate for body stressing claims has reduced 21% since the National OHS Strategy 2002-2012 began. In particular, improvements have been recorded with the handling of crates, cartons and boxes. A copy of the new fact sheet: Priority Mechanisms is available at: Priority Mechanisms Fact Sheet
