2016 Allowed Lost Time Claims by Part of Body

Over the past 10 years, the low back has consistently represented the leading part of body injured. In 2016, low back injuries accounted for about 17 per cent of allowed lost time claims, down from 21 per cent in 2007.

In 2016, workers in the services sector (the sector with the highest number of workers covered) were most prone to injuring one of the seven leading parts of body. Injuries to these seven parts of body tended to be the highest among male workers, across most age groups, and among motor vehicle and transit drivers. Sprains and strains were the leading nature of injury for most of these incidents.

Where the leading injury part of body was the cranial region, young workers (20 to 24 years old) experienced the greatest percentage of these lost time claims in 2016.
