Agriculture posted the highest frequency rate

  • According to the ILO Manual of Methods on Occupational Injuries Statistics, "The frequency rate relates the number of injuries to hours worked which is a direct measure of the degree of exposure of the workers to the risk of injury".
  • In 2011, the frequency rate (FR) of occupational injuries with workdays lost in the country was 2.34. This means that there were only 2 cases of occupational injuries with workdays lost per 1,000,000 employee-hours of exposure. For non-fatal cases, it was recorded at 2.32, with temporary incapacity posted at 2.29.
