Workplace injury - all industries

Note on Data Sources

There are two main sources of non-fatal injury statistics: estimates from self-reports obtained through the annual Labour Force Survey (LFS); and incidents reported by employers under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR). When analysing trends, statistics from the LFS have several advantages over RIDDOR: they are not subject to substantial under reporting; they are not affected by changes in legislation; and data is available for all workplace injuries, irrespective of time off work. For more details on injury data sources.
