This ongoing series examines the HR practices and metrics of Canadian organizations, specifically around turnover, engagement, diversity and inclusion, absence, and health and safety.

Document Highlights

  • Workplace safety incidents have increased since 2020. This rise may be due in part to more employees returning to in-person work, meaning greater chances of workplace exposure incidents that result in lost-time claims.
  • The average total recordable injury frequency (TRIF) and lost-time injury frequency (LTIF) increased nationwide. The median rates for safety incidents and lost-time claims may be a more helpful metric for benchmarking, as many organizations reported zero incidents or claims in 2021.  
  • A focus for organizations should be to continue to emphasize safety culture. Safety culture plays a key role in the mental and physical well-being of employees.
