    • Work injury that results in an absence from work for at least one full day or shift any time after the day or shift on which the injury occurred.
  • alternative duties (restricted, disabling, light duties)
    • Work injury (not LTI) that results in injured person being unable to fully perform his or her ordinary occupation (regular job) any time after the day or shift on which the injury occurred. This is regardless of whether or not the person is rostered to work, and where alternative or light duties are performed or hours are restricted.

Mining injury reports are submitted at the end of the accident date/month and submitted within two weeks of the following month.
