The examination of workers' compensation for occupational fatalities in the construction industry
Construction is one of the most hazardous and risky industries. Construction accidents may result in numerous damages and losses. Workers' compensation is an important source for estimating the costs of construction accidents. In this article, the applicable laws for occupational injuries and the compensation statistics for construction accidents are examined to identify the characteristics of construction accident compensation in Taiwan. Accident reports during the period 1999–2011 are extracted from case reports of the Northern Region Inspection Office of the Council of Labor Affairs...

Estimating the work safety situation in mainland China using Grey theory
With rapid socio-economic development in Mainland China, work safety remains a serious and continuous concern for the country. To better understand work-related accidents, we propose to analyze the dynamic situation and future trends of work safety in Mainland China using grey theory. The forecasting models, i.e., GM (1,1) models are constructed by use of annual data sets of work-related deaths from five branches: mining and commercial casualties, highway traffic accidents, railway traffic accidents, fire disasters, and all fatal casualties. The effectiveness of these proposed models is demonstrated...

Production output pressure and coal mine fatality seasonal variations in China, 2002-2011
INTRODUCTION: The death rate per million tons (DRPMT) is considered as the key index to the quality of coal mine safety management. The index for 2002-2011 revealed a marked improvement in China coal mine safety management during the 10-year period. However, when seasonally adjusted, the 2002-2011 fatality data showed a strong seasonal variation trend. This was reasonably consistent for the 10years, which suggests that it was always the weak link in Chinese coal mine safety management over that time. However, the overall annual decrease in DRPMT was not reflected by any noticeable improvement in...
Epidemiology of occupational accidents among Iranian insured workers
Work-related accidents are considered as a major health problem worldwide. The aim of present study was to determine the epidemiological pattern of occupational accidents among workers insured by the Iranian Social Security Organization (ISSO) between 2001 and 2005. Subjects consisted of all workers and drivers who had a work-related accident during 2001-2005 and were registered in the Iranian Social Security Organization (ISSO) database according to the inspection reports.

Working conditions in Korea
Survey highlights The Korean service sector has grown since the first survey on working conditions was conducted in 2006. The characteristics of the labour market are similar to those of the EU labour market, although long working hours are still a major issue to be tackled, along with discrimination against women, older workers and temporary employees. The principal work-related risk factor is poor ergonomics, particularly in smaller businesses, which have poorer working environments than larger companies. The survey is modelled on Eurofound's European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS). Source...
