Lost time due to injuries is measured in number of hours. It is indexed in relation to the amount of 1,000 working hours.
Even though injuries measured per working hours are decreasing, the ones that actually occur seems to be more severe – or at least have caused relative more lost working hours; measuring the lost time due to injuries has increased by 13% from 2008 to 2011.
Please note that comparison figures for year 2008 and 2010 have been changed since reported for the first time. Changes in the indicator, lost working hours due to lost time injuries, is caused by an enhanced and more complete scope of reporting working hours.
