Defining work-related harm

In New Zealand, and internationally, there are no consistent definitions of workrelated harm. The definitions used reflect the purposes of the different systems they sit in: rehabilitation and compensation cover, notification under health and safety law, and enforcement under health and safety law. The effects of inconsistent definitions are inconsistent coverage and the absence of an effective surveillance system for work-related harm. This impacts on our understanding of work-related harm and our identification of it for treatment, rehabilitation, compensation and prevention purposes.
