Les accidents du travail et problèmes de santé liés au travail dans l’enquête SIP. (In)visibilités et inscriptions dans les trajectoires professionnelles

"L’analyse des carrières suite à un accident du travail ou une maladie d’origine professionnelle a donné lieu à une recherche financée par la Dares et la Drees dans le cadre d’un appel à exploitation de l’enquête Santé et Itinéraire professionnel (SIP)1. Cette recherche pose comme centrale la question des articulations entre l'inscription institutionnelle et l'inscription biographique des accidents du travail et des maladies ou problèmes de santé liés au travail.

The incidence of eye injuries in Canada

OBJECTIVE: To provide information concerning the incidence of eye injuries in Canada. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: The study population consisted of all Canadians over the age of 18 years who agreed to participate in a telephone survey. Study participants were selected via random digit telephone dialing, with a roughly equal per capita geographic representation across Canada. Participating in the study were 4974 people, 51.8% of whom were female. METHODS: People agreeing to participate in the survey were asked whether, during the past year, they had had an eye injury that required medical attention. Those who said they had were asked an additional set of questions to ascertain the nature, cause, and location of the injury. RESULTS: Of the participants, 104 (2.09%) were found to have had an eye injury that required medical attention during the past year. The number of eye injuries occurring at home and at work was approximately the same (37.5% and 35.5%). Playing sports accounted for 8.6% of all injuries. Sharp objects were the primary cause of injury (23.1%), followed by dirt and debris (12.5%), and blunt objects (6.7%). The number of men reporting eye injuries was 3 times that of women. Approximately one quarter of all eye injuries (22.1%) had resulted in taking time off from work or school. CONCLUSIONS: This population-based study indicates that the incidence of eye injuries in Canada is extremely high and argues for a public prevention campaign that encourages the use of eye protection, both at home and in the workplace.

Analysing factors related to slipping, stumbling, and falling accidents at work: Application of data mining methods to Finnish occupational accidents and diseases statistics database

The utilisation of data mining methods has become common in many fields. In occupational accident analysis, however, these methods are still rarely exploited. This study applies methods of data mining (decision tree and association rules) to the Finnish national occupational accidents and diseases statistics database to analyse factors related to slipping, stumbling, and falling (SSF) accidents at work from 2006 to 2007. SSF accidents at work constitute a large proportion (22%) of all accidents at work in Finland. In addition, they are more likely to result in longer periods of incapacity for work than other workplace accidents. The most important factor influencing whether or not an accident at work is related to SSF is the specific physical activity of movement. In addition, the risk of SSF accidents at work seems to depend on the occupation and the age of the worker. The results were in line with previous research. Hence the application of data mining methods was considered successful. The results did not reveal anything unexpected though. Nevertheless, because of the capability to illustrate a large dataset and relationships between variables easily, data mining methods were seen as a useful supplementary method in analysing occupational accident data.

Survival Analysis

Researchers in work and health can use survival analysis—a branch of statistics that often predicts the timing of death—to calculate other things that are far more life affirming: return to work after an injury, for example.
