  • Serious injury: A lost time injury that results in the injured person being disabled for a period of two weeks or more
  • Minor injury: A lost time injury that results in the injured person being disabled for a period of less than two weeks
  • Disabling injury (DI): Work injury (not LTI) that results in injured person being unable to perform his or her ordinary occupation (regular job) any time after the day or shift on which the injury occurred, regardless of whether or not the person is rostered to work, and where alternative or light duties are performed or hours are restricted

Fatal accidents 2009-10
  • A service crewman employed at an underground gold mine was fatally injured when he fell through an ore pass grizzly onto the muck pile 38 metres below. He had been attempting to cover the grizzly to prevent dust coming out of the ore pass system during tipping operations from higher levels in the mine. His body was discovered in the early hours of the morning.

The vessel comprised two separate but adjoining chambers. The worker apparently fell through an open manhole into the lower chamber of the vessel and then to the ground via a discharge chute.
