Abstract The statistics in this bulletin provide information and analysis on work-related accidents and confirmed cases of occupational disease in Hong Kong during the year 2005, with breakdowns by economic sectors and trends from 1996 to 2005. In 2005, the number of occupational injuries in all workplaces stood at 44,267, a slight increase of 0.5% over 2004, while the injury rate per 1000 employees decreased slightly from 18.1 to 17.8 or 1.7%. Of the 29 fatalities, 25 concerned the construction industry. The total number of occupational diseases in 2005 was 256, a level comparable to that of 2004.
