WorkSafeBC Statistics 2010


This report is published annually as a complement to the operational and financial reviews covered in WorkSafeBC’s (the Workers’ Compensation Board’s) 2010 Annual Report and 2011–2013 Service Plan.

WorkSafeBC Statistics 2010 is about more than statistics and financial costs — it’s a foundation for WorkSafeBC and our stakeholders to understand the causes and patterns of injuries, and to initiate prevention strategies. And, more importantly, this publication reflects the fact that a human being is the source of every statistic.

Without data, there can be no understanding of why injuries happen; without understanding, there can be no effective management of work-related risks.
