Operational Definitions
The occupational fatalities per 100,000 labour force. They are obtained by: number of fatal injuries/ total number of workers x 100,000.
Footnote
All figures are collected from Labour Department since 1986. Figures of non-fatal occupational injuries of construction workers per 100,000 construction manual workers engaged are provided by the Labour Department for the years of 1986 and after.

Futher to Labour Department (20Feb 2008), occupational injuries (including industrial accidents) are injury cases arising from work accidents, resulting in death or inacpacity for work of over three days, and reported under the Employees' Compensation Ordinance. Since 1.1.1998, Labour Department has used the date of occurance of an injury as the basis for computing work injury statistics instead of the date of reporting in order to reflect more accurately the number of work injuries occuring in the year.
