2016 Allowed Lost Time Claims by Part of Body

Similar to Schedule 1, the low back has consistently represented the leading part of body injured over the past 10 years for Schedule 2.

In 2016, injuries to the low back accounted for 15 per cent of allowed lost time claims, followed by multiple body parts (12 per cent), and leg(s) (10 per cent).

In 2016, male workers in Schedule 2 accounted for the greatest percentage of claims for four of the seven leading part of body injuries and workers aged 50 to 54 years old represented the highest number of lost time claims.

Sprains and strains, again, were the leading nature of injury for these seven parts of the body, and the leading source was persons (bodily motion or condition).
