2017 leading injury characteristics

Most workers’ compensation boards and commissions in Canada code the injury details of a claim using the National Work Injuries Statistics Program coding standard. This standard is based on the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z795-96 codes which allow for more detailed coding of injury details. The WSIB adheres to this standard and codes all lost-time claims using four categories: nature of injury, event, source, and part of body.
