Vehicle crashes were the most common notifiable work-related fatalities in 2013, says the latest Safe Work Australia figures.

Vehicle crashes on public roads accounted for 69 fatalities.

In addition, vehicle incidents off public roads accounted for 24 fatalities, pedestrians hit on public roads accounted for 9 fatalities, pedestrians hit off public roads accounted for 5 fatalities, being hit by a moving unattended vehicle off a public road accounted for 4 fatalities and being hit by a moving unattended vehicle on a public road accounted for 1 fatality.

Meanwhile, the number of all monthly notifiable work-related fatalities fluctuated markedly across 2013, jumping to 26 deaths in March 2013, then dropping to 11 deaths in August, and then climbing to 24 deaths in December.

Safe Work Australia says all these figures are preliminary.
