The Causes and Incidence of Occupational Accidents and Ill-Health Across the Globe

The study was commissioned by the British Safety Council to bring together for the first time the different country data on work-related deaths, accidents and ill-health, to enable an analysis of the overall pattern of reporting across the world. It draws on evidence produced by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other leading national and international organisations involved in labour and employment standards, including health and safety.
