5 KEY FACTS Estimated annual workplace and work-related traffic fatal injury rate stood at 2.0 per 100,000 employed persons; Number of workplace minor injuries rose in 2014 In 2014, Ministry of Manpower expanded the employment base definition to include all workplaces covered under the WSH Act. Hence, 2014 rates are not strictly comparable with previous years. Overview of the latest statistics on workplace safety and health in Singapore for January to June 2014 are: Workplace and work-related traffic injuries 30 (34) workers were fatally injured, an estimated annual rate of 1.8 (2.0) per 100,000 employed persons. 279 (304) workers sustained major injuries, an estimated annual rate of 17.2 (18.6) per 100,000 employed persons. 6,005 (6,229) workers sustained less severe injuries (i.e. minor injuries), an estimated annual rate of 370 (382) per 100,000 employed persons. 311,623 (340,463) man-days were lost, an estimated annual rate of 80 (87) mandays lost per million man-hours worked (i.e. accident severity rate). An estimated annual 1.6 (1.7) incidents occurred for every million man-hours worked (i.e. accident frequency rate). Occupational diseases 423 occupational disease (OD) cases were confirmed this year, an estimated annual incidence rate of 26.0 per 100,000 employed persons. Figures in parentheses include work-related traffic injuries Workplace Safety and Health Institute, Singapore 5

6 OVERVIEW Workplace and Work-related Traffic Injuries For the first half of 2014, the preliminary 1 WSH statistics showed that the overall number of reported 2 workplace injuries 3 increased by 14% as compared to same period last year (Table 1.1). Fatal Injuries There was an increase in the number of workplace fatal injuries from 25 in Jan-Jun to 30 in Jan-Jun 2014 (Table 1.1). Workplace fatal injury rate remained constant at 0.9 per 100,000 employed persons with that of Jan-Jun (Table 1.2). There were 4 work-related traffic fatal injuries in Jan-Jun Work-related traffic fatal injury rate decreased from 0.4 per 100,000 employed persons in Jan-Jun to 0.1 in Jan- Jun 2014 (Table 1.2). Major Injuries Workplace major injuries remained about the same, 279 (8.6 per 100,000 employed persons) in Jan-Jun 2014 compared to 273 (9.8 per 100,000 employed persons) in Jan-Jun. There were 25 work-related traffic major injuries in Jan-Jun Minor Injuries Compared to, there was an increase in workplace minor injuries of 14%, 5,249 (188 per 100,000 employed persons) in Jan-Jun to 6,005 (185 per 100,000 employed persons) in Jan-Jun There were 224 work-related traffic minor injuries in Jan-Jun Preliminary figures are based on injuries data collated from incident reports as at end June They will be finalised in January 2015 after collation of 2014 data ends in end December Workplaces have to report work incidents to the Ministry of Manpower under the WSH (Incident Reporting) Regulations. 3 A workplace injury is any personal injury or death resulting from a workplace accident. Please refer to the annex for the types of workplace injuries covered. Workplace Safety and Health Institute, Singapore 6

9 Figure 3: Workplace minor injury rate, A total of 311,623 man-days was lost from workplace injuries, an increase of 5.8% from Jan- Jun. The accident frequency rate (AFR), which measures how often work incidents occur, was 1.6 incidents per million man-hours worked in Jan-Jun The accident severity rate (ASR) was 80 man-days lost for every million hours worked in Jan-Jun 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 9

10 Occupational diseases For occupational diseases (OD) 8, the number of cases confirmed was 423 in the first half of 2014, down from 474 in the same period last year (Table 1.1). For Jan-Jun 2014, OD incidence was 13.0 confirmed cases per 100,000 employed persons, compared to 17.0 in the previous year (Table 1.2). The reduction was contributed mainly by a reduction in noiseinduced deafness cases.

22 Workplace Safety & Health Statistics Report, WORKPLACE MAJOR INJURIES Major injuries remained about the same, increase in non-traditional sectors The total number of major injuries remained about the same as in Jan-Jun. 279 workers (8.6 per 100,000 employed persons) sustained major injuries 14 in Jan-Jun 2014, compared to 273 workers (9.8 per 100,000 employed persons) in the same period last year (Table 1.7 & 1.8). 28,501 man-days were lost as a result of these incidents. Workplace major injuries by sector The three traditional higher risk sectors accounted for 152 (54%) of the workplace major injuries reported (Table 1.7). Construction sector worsened, with 84 cases (17.6 per 100,000 employed persons) in Jan- Jun 2014, up from 71 cases (16.1 per 100,000 employed persons) in Jan-Jun. Increased major injury rate was also seen in the Water Supply; Sewerage, Waste Management and Remediation Activities, Wholesale & Retail Trade, Logistics & Transport, Financial & Insurance Activities, Real Estate Activities and Administrative & Support Service Activities sectors compared to the same period in. In Jan-Jun 2014, Manufacturing sector saw a reduction to 12.3 per 100,000 employed persons compared to 15.9 per 100,000 employed persons in Jan-Jun. Improvement was primarily contributed by the Metalworking sub-sector. A reduction was also seen for the Marine sector with 13.7 cases per 100,000 employed persons compared to 16.9 cases per 100,000 employed persons in Jan-Jun. Workplace major injury rates decreased for the Accommodation & Food Service Activities from 7.8 per 100,000 employed persons in Jan- Jun to 5.3 in Jan-Jun 2014, and Health Activities sectors (6.6 per 100,000 employed persons in Jan-Jun to 3.7 in Jan-Jun 2014). 14 Refer to Annex D for definition.

The top incident agent associated with Slips, Trips and Falls was Physical Workplace - Floor/Level Surfaces. The top incident agent for FFH was Means of Access - Ladders. For Caught in/between Objects, the top incident agent was Industrial Machines. 72% of these cases resulted in amputations. Workplace major injuries by injury types Crushing, Fractures and Dislocations were the leading types of injury, accounting for 54% of all workplace major injuries. This was followed by Amputations, with 58 workers suffering from complete loss or loss of use of any member/part of a member of the injured person s body in Jan-Jun This was an increase from 56 in Jan-Jun (Table 1.9).
