Abstract Virtually all branches of science give advice on how to interpret statistics related to their field. The field of Systems Dynamics suggests that the pattern of observable events resulting from a system provides insights into the structure of a system. With OHS, the events of significance are workplace injuries and incidents. The pattern of events, eg correlations or trends over time, is used to determine the causes of injuries and incidents and to elucidate the structure of the system that caused them.
