2016 Allowed Lost Time Claims by Leading Occupations
Ontario’s workforce is diverse and made up of more than 155 occupations. Over the past 10 years for Schedule 2, secondary and elementary school teachers and counsellors, as well as police officers and firefighters, have been the two occupations with the highest number of allowed lost time claims.
In 2016 workers between the ages of 50 and 54 years represented the leading age group for three of the seven leading occupations. The leading occupation for female workers was secondary and elementary school teachers and counsellors, whereas police officers and firefighters were the leading occupation for male workers. In all cases the leading nature of injury was sprains and strains.
