Claims by age and gender

2012 – 2016

Contrary to popular thinking, it isn’t the youngest workers who have the most work-related motor vehicle crashes, but workers between 35 and 54 years of age. Younger workers have the fewest crashes except for those 65 and over. While the numbers may be affected by the fact that there are more middle-aged than younger workers in the workforce, it indicates that driving experience doesn’t equate to safer driving. The graph below shows the breakdown by age.

As for gender, about one quarter of time-loss MVI claims are from women while three quarters are from men.
