5 KEY FACTS Workplace fatal injury rate remained at 2.1, but number of workplace minor injuries rose in 2013 The Ministry of Manpower will include back injury cases due to ergonomic risks 1 as cases of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD), an occupational disease (OD), with effect from For the 2013 OD statistics, we have reflected the estimated number of back injury cases and adjusted the statistics as shown in parenthesis. This is to signal its importance and to drive efforts for the prevention of WRMSD at the workplace. Including these cases will make WRMSD the second most common OD in Singapore. Overview of the 2013 statistics on workplace safety and health in Singapore: Workplace injuries 59 workers (73 including work-related traffic fatal injuries) were fatally injured at work, a rate of 2.1 (2.3 including work-related traffic fatal injuries) per 100,000 employed persons. 589 workers sustained major injuries at work, a rate of 20.7 per 100,000 employed persons. 11,467 (11,253 after excluding back injury cases due to ergonomic risks) workers encountered less severe injuries (i.e. minor injuries), a rate of 403 (396) per 100,000 employed persons. 633,416 man-days were lost at work, a rate of 91 man-days lost per million manhours worked (i.e. accident severity rate). 1.7 incidents occurred at work for every million man-hours worked (i.e. accident frequency rate). Work-related Traffic Fatal Injuries 14 workers were fatally injured from work-related traffic accidents. Occupational diseases 673 occupational disease (OD) cases (887 including back injury cases due to ergonomic risks) were confirmed this year, an incidence rate of 23.7 (31.2 including back injury cases due to ergonomic risks) per 100,000 employed persons. Leading OD is noise-induced deafness with 564 cases. Second most common OD is work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD) with 237 cases, with inclusion of back injury cases due to ergonomic risks. 1 Back injury cases due to ergonomic risks were included as minor injuries in previous Annual WSH Statistics Reports.

6 OVERVIEW Workplace Injuries For the year of 2013, the overall number of reported workplace injuries increased by 9.0% as compared to same period last year (Table 1.1). The number of workplace fatal injuries saw a slight increase from 56 in 2012 to 59 in 2013 (Table 1.1). Workplace fatal injury rate remained at 2.1 per 100,000 employed persons in 2012 and 2013 (Table 1.2). Workplace major injuries remained about the same, 589 in 2013 compared to 588 in Workplace major injury rate was 20.7 per 100,000 employed persons as at 2013, down from 21.6 in the same period last year. Workplace minor injuries saw an increase of 9.5% from the previous year (10,469 in 2012 to 11,467 in 2013). Workplace minor injury rate was 403 per 100,000 employed persons in 2013, up from 384 in Table 1.1: Number of workplace injuries and occupational diseases, 2012 and Workplace Injuries 12,115 (11,901) 11,113 Fatal Injuries Major Injuries Minor Injuries 11,467 (11,253) 10,469 Work-related Traffic Fatal Injuries Occupational Diseases (OD) 673 (887) 987 Figures in parentheses refer to figures which include/exclude back injury cases due to ergonomic risks as WRMSD cases in Occupational Disease statistics.

The accident severity rate (ASR) saw an increase from 88 man-days lost for every million hours worked in 2012 to 91 in Detailed industry breakdown of the AFR, ASR and man-days lost data can be found in Tables A-1 and A-2 in Annex A. Workplace Safety and Health Institute, Singapore 8

9 Table 1.3: Workplace Accident Frequency Rate, Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) Table 1.4: Workplace Accident Severity Rate, Accident Severity Rate (ASR) Work-related Traffic Fatal Injuries There were 14 work-related traffic fatal injuries in Transportation & storage sector was the main contributor with 5 fatalities. Motorcycles were most commonly involved in workrelated traffic fatal injuries (43%). 43% of work-related traffic fatal injuries involved drivers of car & goods vehicles. Occupational diseases For occupational diseases (OD) 6, the number of cases confirmed was 673 in 2013 (887 including back injury cases due to ergonomic risks), down from 987 in the same period last year (Table 1.1). OD incidence was 23.7 confirmed cases per 100,000 employed persons (31.2 including back injury cases due to ergonomic risks), compared to 36.2 in the previous year (Table 1.2). The reduction was contributed mainly by a reduction in noise-induced deafness cases. With inclusion of back injury cases due to ergonomic risks as cases of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD), WRMSD was the second most common OD (237 cases) after noise-induced deafness (564 cases). 6 An occupational disease is a disease contracted as a result of exposure to risk factors arising from work.

11 WORKPLACE FATAL INJURIES 59 workplace fatal injuries in 2013, 56% of the fatalities were from construction sector There were 59 workplace fatal injuries in 2013, an increase from 56 workplace fatal injuries in Workplace fatal injury rate remained at 2.1 per 100,000 employed persons (Table 1.5 & Table 1.6). Workplace fatal Injuries by sector Construction Workplace fatal injury rate in Construction sector had generally shown a downward trend since Fatal injuries number and rate was at the lowest in However, there was a reversal in trend in the last two years. It remained the top contributor in 2013 with 33 fatal injuries or 56% of all workplace fatal injuries, up from 26 in same period last year (Table 1.5). The workplace fatal injury rate in the construction sector rose from 5.9 per 100,000 employed persons in 2012 to 7.0 per 100,000 employed persons in It posted the highest workplace fatal injury rate amongst the three traditionally higher risk sectors 7 (Table 1.6). Figure 5: Workplace fatal injury rate for Construction sector, The three traditionally higher risk sectors are Construction, Marine & Manufacturing. Workplace Safety and Health Institute, Singapore 11

12 Marine Marine 8 sector generally saw a decreasing trend in its workplace fatal injuries number and fatal injury rate, decreasing from 9.4 per 100,000 employed persons in 2011 to 2.7 per 100,000 employed persons in There were 3 workplace fatal injuries in 2013, compared to 6 in 2012 (Table 1.5).

22 WORK-RELATED TRAFFIC FATAL INJURIES There were 14 work-related traffic fatal injuries in Work-related traffic fatal injuries by sector Transportation & Storage sector was main contributor to work-related traffic fatal injuries In 2013, the Transportation & Storage sector was the main contributor of work-related traffic fatal injuries with 5 fatalities. This was followed by the Food & Beverage Service Activities sector and Wholesale Trade sector with 3 and 2 work-related traffic fatal injuries respectively (Table 1.9). Construction, Education, Manufacturing and Other Personal Service Activities sectors each had 1 case.
