Occupational injury risk among Australian paramedics: An analysis of national data
from National Center for Biotechnology Information
The objective of this research was to identify the occupational risks for Australian paramedics, by describing the rate of injuries and fatalities and comparing those rates with other reports. Retrospective descriptive study using data was provided by Safe Work Australia for the period 2000-2010. The subjects were paramedics who had been injured in the course of their duties and for whom a claim had been made for workers compensation payments.
