Analyse des différences de durées d’indemnisation selon le sexe et le groupe d’âge
Les indicateurs statistiques de santé et de sécurité du travail produits depuis plusieurs années par l'Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) montrent que la durée moyenne d'indemnisation des lésions professionnelles ayant occasionné une perte de temps indemnisée (PTI) a presque doublé en 15 ans. Alors que l'écart de durées moyennes d'indemnisation entre les femmes et les hommes diminue au fil des années, celui entre chaque groupe...
A study of leading indicators for occupational health and safety management systems in healthcare
Background: In Ontario, Canada, approximately $2.5 billion is spent yearly on occupational injuries in the healthcare sector. The healthcare sector has been ranked second highest for lost-time injury rates among 16 Ontario sectors since 2009 with female healthcare workers ranked the highest among all occupations for lost-time claims. There is a great deal of focus in Ontario's occupational health and safety system on compliance and fines, however despite this increased focus, the injury statistics are not significantly improving. One of the keys to changing this trend is the development of...
A combined approach for the analysis of large occupational accident databases to support accident-prevention decision making
Occupational accidents are commonly collected in large databases by National Workers Compensation Authorities and companies' safety and prevention teams. The analysis of the data can be difficult because the database elements are characterized by many parameters, which are not of a numerical nature. Data mining techniques could represent an efficient tool for the identification of useful information in large databases. In 2011, a two-level clustering method, made of SOM and numerical clustering, obtained positive results in identifying critical accident dynamics. The present research proceeds...
Economic Evaluation of Occupational Safety and Health Interventions From the Employer Perspective
A Systematic Review Objectives: The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of occupational safety and health interventions from the employer perspective.

Comparative Analysis of the Burden of Injury and Illness at Work in Selected Countries and Regions
Developed countries have made tremendous progress in Workplace Safety and Health in terms of reducing the burden of occupational injuries caused by accidents. Developing countries and transition economies experience both high injury and illness risks at work. There is a clear need to look more carefully at the long latency diseases and disorders caused by work. In order to have a baseline for priority setting and future work, a better picture of the burden caused by work is needed. Data on both fatalities and non-fatal outcomes, attributable fractions based on the exposure-outcome relationship...
Impact de l’allongement de la période de maturité des données sur les indicateurs de SST
L’Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) produit et publie depuis plusieurs années des indicateurs statistiques de santé et de sécurité du travail (fréquence, gravité, fréquence-gravité, coûts). Ceux-ci sont habituellement produits tous les 5 ans à l’aide de données administratives de la Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) qui ont, en moyenne, 3 ans de...
Burden of disease from road traffic and railway noise
A quantification of healthy life years lost in Sweden This paper provides the first estimation of the health burden in terms of disability-adjusted life-years (DALY) of noise from the transport sector in Sweden.

Occupational risks, accidents on sites and economic performance of construction firms
This paper examines the relationships among site risk, accident rate and firm economic performance in construction industry. We first assess safety levels on site using a specific tool we have developed, CONSRAT. We have examined during 6 years (2004–2009) 502 construction sites of 272 Spanish companies in Mallorca. We built a panel data with these safety assessments, the firm financial performance and the accident rates. Our general hypotheses are that risk on site has an effect on accident rates and the accident rates affects firm economic performance. On one hand, we obtain a significant...
Measuring and reporting on work health and safety
WHS reporting needs to provide relevant, robust and timely information to inform decisions that influence ongoing business performance. Poor WHS outcomes can have a detrimental impact on individuals and their families, on the financial, interpersonal and reputational health of a business and, potentially, on the wider community. This report explores processes for gathering and communicating the WHS performance information that guides the WHS decisions of an organisation's officers.

Safety at the workplace: accidents and illnesses
The topic of work safety is a very relevant and multifaceted problem for workers, firms and policy makers. Differing from other narrow-scope studies, this article aims to enrich the understanding of workplace safety as a whole by applying econometric techniques on data from the Italian Labour Force Survey. Findings show poor working conditions are the most significant determinants of accidents and illnesses occurring at work, while having a fixed-term (temporary) contract is not significant. Other significant determinants of work safety are: not being new to the workforce; dissatisfaction with...

Nous avons adapté les données de l’EPA afin d’obtenir l’estimation du nombre de...
La prévention des risques professionnels. Les mesures mises en œuvre par les employeurs publics et privés
Près de 60 % des employeurs publics et privés ont pris des mesures de prévention des risques professionnels en 2013. Ces mesures n'ont pas toujours fait suite à une démarche formalisée d'évaluation des risques pour la santé et la sécurité de leurs salariés puisque seuls 46 % des employeurs ont élaboré ou mis à jour un document unique d'évaluation des risques professionnels, pourtant obligatoire pour toutes les entreprises depuis 2001. Globalement, les politiques de prévention...

Costs of occupational injuries and diseases in Québec
PROBLEM: Occupational injuries and diseases are costly for companies and for society as a whole. This study estimates the overall costs of occupational injuries and diseases in Québec, both human and financial, during the period from 2005 to 2007. METHOD: The human capital method is used to estimate lost productivity. A health indicator (DALY) is used in combination with a value of statistical life (VSL) to estimate, in monetary terms, the pain and suffering costs resulting from occupational injuries. RESULTS: The costs of occupational injuries and diseases occurring in a single year in...
Using leading indicators to measure occupational health and safety performance
A study was conducted to advance the state of knowledge and practice on the topic of using leading indicators to measure occupational health and safety (OHS) performance of organizations. The specific research aims were to (1) describe the extent to which OHS practitioners understand leading indicators; (2) explore organizational practices pertaining to tracking, analyzing, and applying information provided by leading indicators to improve OHS performance; and (3) identify barriers and factors that enable the use of leading indicators. The study design included an expert panel and a quantitative...
Trial-Based Economic Evaluations in Occupational Health
Principles, Methods, and Recommendations To allocate available resources as efficiently as possible, decision makers need information on the relative economic merits of occupational health and safety (OHS) interventions. Economic evaluations can provide this information by comparing the costs and consequences of alternatives. Nevertheless, only a few of the studies that consider the effectiveness of OHS interventions take the extra step of considering their resource implications. Moreover, the methodological quality of those that do is generally poor. Therefore, this study aims to help occupational...

Developing leading indicators of work injury and illness
Leading indicators of work injury and illness are characteristics of workplaces that precede occupational health and safety (OHS) outcomes and, if changed, are expected to lead to changes in these outcomes. As a result, leading indicators have the potential to help identify factors affecting the risk of injury, allowing workplaces to address these factors before injuries occur. This Issue Briefing looks at efforts to date to identify OHS leading indicators, the challenges involved, and the work being done at the Institute for Work & Health to identify the best and most usable set of management...

Evaluation of occupational injuries with lost days among opencast coal mine workers through logistic regression models
Despite precautions, mining remains the most hazardous occupation, and coal mining is one of the most dangerous industries for non-fatal occupational accidents. Accidents are complicated events with many factors that affect their formation, and statistical evaluation of accident records can produce valuable information that may prevent such accidents. In this study, a logistic regression analysis method was applied to non-fatal occupational injuries from 1996 to 2009 in an opencast coal mine for Western Lignite Corporation (WLC) of Turkish Coal Enterprises (TKI). The accident records were categorized...
Follow-up and assessment of self reports of work-related illness in the Labour Force Survey - RR970
The Labour Force Survey (LFS) provides estimates of the scale and distribution of work-related ill health conditions across Great Britain. Given its reliance on the self-reporting of these conditions it is of interest to get a better understanding of the nature of the relationship between work and the illness, the characteristics of respondents, details of the conditions reported and the effect they have on individuals’ lives. The Work- Related Illness Survey was a multiple stage project designed to acquire this further detail. A sample of respondents reporting an illness in the 2010 LFS...
