NCCI Injury Characteristics & Insights Dashboard Good Info


NCCI Injury Characteristics & Insights Dashboard – Nice Graphics and Info

The NCCI Injury Characteristics & Insights Dashboard contains a huge amount of good info for Risk Managers.  Usually, I find most statistical dashboards with limited info that may be hard to decipher.   This dashboard is one to check out for sure.  You can find it by clicking here.

From NCCI – the dashboard provides:

  • Key insights that highlight the latest industry trends on the characteristics that underlie workplace injuries. Stakeholders can use them to benchmark against their own book of business to identify opportunities for improving workplace safety, preventing injuries, and possibly influencing the outcomes.
  • An overview of which injuries are the most common versus those that are the most costly, as well as how injuries are changing over time.
  • Ten years of data for a long-term view into how the types of workplace injuries are changing over time

The NCCI Injury Characteristics & Insights Dashboard example from above showed an interesting severity statistic that is worth knowing – Injury severity by source.

I had always thought that burns were the most severe injury type.  I was incorrect.  The highest severity of injuries comes as a result of motor vehicle injuries.

Then, when I went back through the old client files, this info was correct.  Wow, that is why I will use this dashboard more in the future.  One thing the Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) ranking with the highest severity cost shows is the need for workers comp claims adjusters to heavily investigate subrogation.  

Ten years of data is currently available on the NCCI Injury Characteristics & Insights Dashboard. If you decide to use any of their data for presentations please make sure you give them a backlink.
