NORTHERN Grampians Shire was the only Wimmera municipality which had a rise in workplace injuries in 2012.
The municipality recorded 81 workplace injuries in 2012, an increase from 69 in 2011.
The Wimmera's rate of workplace injuries otherwise fell or remained steady in 2012.
The State Government released 2012 WorkCover injury statistics yesterday.
Assistant Treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips said the figures showed 2012 was the safest year on record for Victorian workplaces.
Last year 18 people died in Victorian workplaces, seven fewer than in 2011 and equal to the previous record low of 18 workplace deaths in 2005.
Mr Rich-Phillips said the number of injured Victorian workers also fell to a new low.
Workplace injury numbers remained steady in Yarriambiack Shire, which recorded 27 injuries a year in 2011 and 2012.
Ararat Rural City injury numbers were also steady, with 68 injuries in 2012, compared with 70 in 2011.
West Wimmera and Hindmarsh municipalities recorded 18 injuries each in 2012, with 25 and 27 injuries in 2011 respectively.
Injuries in Buloke Shire dropped from 28 in 2011 to 23 in 2012.
Horsham Rural City also had a decrease, from 99 injuries in 2011 to 79 in 2012.
The sole workplace death in the Wimmera was in January 2012, after a Horsham woman, 84, fell from a trolley in Wimmera Base Hospital's nursing home.
The injury statistics show claims where a person was off work for 10 days or more and-or had treatment costs exceeding $629.
The claims are from workplaces registered in the municipality, but the injuries might not have occurred there.
The statistics exclude self-insurers.
