This month is National Safe Work Month, a time for workers and employers across Australia to commit to safe and healthy workplaces for all Australians.
The NCIS is a valuable data collection that supports the development of death and injury prevention strategies by providing access to coronial data for death investigation and research.
Safe Work Australia is a core funder of the NCIS Unit and provides supplementary data to the NCIS for Australian work-related deaths, including occupation, industry and injury type codes. In addition, Safe Work Australia publishes a variety of statistics and research on work-related death and injury, alongside safety information.
NCIS Fatal facts is a unique tool that allows public access to Australian coronial recommendations. Users can search the tool by a variety of category tags. A search using the Work related category can identify summaries of workplace incident deaths and associated coronial recommendations made to improve public health and safety.
A variety of organisations use NCIS data to conduct research into work-related deaths. Links to relevant research publications are available on the NCIS website.
