Non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses
The estimates of non-fatal work-related injury and illness are calculated by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) based on data collected in the Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS).
A more detailed breakdown of fatal and non-fatal injuries is available in our annual Summary of Workplace Injury, Illness and Fatality Statistics.
Note: As the QNHS is a sample survey involving self reporting of work related accidents and illnesses the results are subject to sampling and other survey errors. Specifically, estimates and changes over time of a lower magnitude can be taken to have lower precision.
