Workplace injuries are at historic lows in Indiana.

Non-fatal injuries have been on a steady decline for more than a decade, from 9.5 percent in 1996 to 4.3 percent in 2011.

The numbers come from the Annual Survey of Occupational Injuries. It considers four of Indiana's major industries - manufacturing, state and local government, retail trade and health care.

The only increase in injuries was in the health care industry.

This is the third year the state has had a 4.3 percent injury rate.
