By the Numbers: 2017 WSIB Statistical Report
WSIB is a hub of health and safety data. We're using our business intelligence to help drive better health and safety outcomes across the system. By the Numbers: WSIB Statistical Report provides useful information for both the wider prevention system and individual workplaces. This report provides insight into what is happening in Ontario workplaces each year. It is intended to be a valuable resource for employees and employers as they continue the important work of making their workplaces safer and healthier. By the Numbers also helps fulfill our ongoing commitment to open and transparent data.
The 2017 focus chapter highlights the WSIB Drug Benefit Program. This chapter provides an overview of the state of prescription drug use for people with a workplace injury or illness covered under the Workplace Safety & Insurance Act.
Beyond making updates and adding new content, we are always looking for innovative ways to add value for those who are the By the Numbers report. This year, we made an addition to the Report Builder, an interactive feature that allows users to choose the information they need to build their own reports. For 2017, we have added data on no lost-time injuries to Report Builder. In upcoming years, we will keep working toward more open and transparent data, and we plan to continue expanding the Report Builder feature.
