2019 Injury Trends – Long-term Care
November 6, 2020 | News
After five years of a positive downward trend, the overall injury rate for long-term care increased in 2019. Despite the increase, SafeCare BC members still demonstrate a lower injury rate than the overall classification unit.
84,500 workdays were lost to injury — almost the equivalent of 340 fulltime staff members.
It is too early to tell if this is an outlier or an indication of a continuing upward trend. Regardless, SafeCare BC will continue to work bring down the injury rate.
