Accidents, deaths and health problems at work: the costs for EuropeEach year, work-related accidents result in long periods of absence from work, and even death. Furthermore, a significant proportion of Europe’s working population suffers from one or more work-related health problems. As a first step towards estimating the Europe-wide costs of work-related health problems, accidents and deaths, EU-OSHA has produced a new report evaluating the quality and comparability of the available data that can be used to determine those costs. Although the authors identified a lack of robust and reliable data in this area, they suggest methods that would allow a partial estimation of costs to be made. An OSHwiki article provides additional information for the EU-OSHA technical report "Estimating the costs of work-related accidents and ill-health: An analyis of European data sources" and its summary. It was produced in the context of a long-term research project which aims to develop an economic costing model to establish reliable estimates of the costs.  Read the article: Accidents, deaths and health problems at work: the costs for Europe Share your favourite OSHwiki articles on Twitter (#OSHwiki), Facebook and LinkedIn.
