U. S. - Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Summary, 2009

A preliminary total of 4,340 fatal work injuries were recorded in the United States in 2009, down from a final count of 5,214 fatal work injuries in 2008.  The 2009 total represents the smallest annual preliminary total since the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) program was first conducted in 1992.  Based on this preliminary count, the rate of fatal work injury for U.S. workers in 2009 was 3.3 per 100,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) workers, down from a final rate of 3.7 in 2008.  Counts and rates are likely to increase with the release of final 2009 CFOI results in April 2011.  Over the last 2 years, increases in the published counts based on information received after the publication of preliminary results have averaged 156 fatalities per year or about 3 percent of the revised totals.

Trends in quality of life in the EU

2003-2009 - Résumé
Monitoring changes in Europeans' quality of life and developing policies to boost their well-being are increasingly important in EU debate. Increasingly, it is acknowledged that while economic indicators such as gross domestic product (GDP) are important in assessing the level of well-being in a country, they are not sufficient. More and more, it is argued that public policy should be assessed in terms of how it directly promotes citizens' welfare, taking in considerations of social and environmental, as well as economic, conditions.

Health and safety at work in Europe (1999-2007)

This report presents a statistical portrait of health and safety at work in Europe from 1999 to 2007. It focuses on accidents at work, work-related health problems, occupational diseases and exposure to risk factors at work. Data from different European surveys and register based statistical systems are presented in this report, including the Labour Force Survey (LFS) (more specifically the ad-hoc modules on safety and health at work), European Statistics on Accidents at Work (ESAW), European Occupational Diseases Statistics (EODS), the European Survey on Working Conditions (EWCS), and the European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging Risks (ESENER).

Mesurer le travail

Une contribution à l'histoire des enquêtes françaises dans ce domaine
Ce texte étudie les conditions dans lesquelles se sont élaborés les principaux outils statistiques français sur les conditions de travail. Il vise notamment à expliquer l'ampleur prise par ces dispositifs, y compris dans des périodes où ces questions n'étaient pas au premier plan des préoccupations politiques et sociales dans notre pays. Dans les années qui ont suivi 1968 ces préoccupations étaient vives et ont présidé aux premières décisions de créations d'enquêtes. Mais, par la suite, celles-ci se sont développées en faisant largement appel aux réseaux de partenaires et aux appuis scientifiques constitués par les acteurs du dispositif statistique. Les objectifs assignés à ces dispositifs (en particulier le souci de sensibilisation et d'analyse scientifique plutôt que d'évaluations ciblées) ; les thématiques développées (en particulier l'extension progressive des questionnaires à des items concernant l'organisation du travail) et les grands choix de méthodes (par exemple l'élaboration de dispositifs « couplés » d'enquêtes auprès d'employeurs et de salariés) ont largement pris appui sur des réflexions autonomes des réseaux de statisticiens et de chercheurs impliqués dans ces opérations. Cette relative autonomie n'a pas nui – voire, a contribué – aux capacités du système à répondre aux préoccupations sociales, quand celles-ci se sont à nouveau faites plus présentes.

Proportions of Workers Who Were Work-Injured and Payment by Workers’ Compensation Systems

10 States, 2007
Approximately 4 million occupational nonfatal injuries and illnesses among workers were reported by employers in the United States in 2007. Research indicates that self-reported, nonfatal, occupational injury rates exceed estimates from employer reports or state workers’ compensation systems. To estimate the incidence of self-reported work-injured persons and the proportion of those injured for whom workers’ compensation insurance programs paid for medical care, 10 states added a module to their 2007 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey. This report summarizes the results of that survey.
