IWH study: Divergent trends in work-related and non-work-related injuries

A new study from the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) found differing trends between work-related and non-work-related injuries. Injuries related to work decreased steadily over the 8 years studied while non-work-related injuries remained stable. From 2004 to 2011, work-related injuries declined by more than 30%, approximately 6% per year, while non-work-related injuries did not decline.
