Health Risk Calculator
An Online, Interactive Tool to Estimate how Health Impacts Workers’ Compensation Claim Incidence and Cost Objective: The purpose of this paper is to describe and evaluate a web-based, educational Health Risk Calculator that communicates the value of investing in employee health and well-being for the prevention of work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

Results: We observed evidence...
Suicide and drug-related mortality following occupational injury
BACKGROUND: Drug overdoses and suicides have been rising since 2000 and are major contributors to a 3-year decline in US life expectancy. Studies suggest that injured workers have elevated rates of depression and opioid use, but no studies have measured excess mortality related to these risks. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We linked New Mexico workers' compensation data for 100 806 workers injured in 1994 through 2000 with Social Security Administration earnings and mortality data through 2013 and National Death Index cause of death data. We then estimated the association between receiving lost-time...
The value of occupational safety and health and the societal costs of work-related injuries and diseases
This report details the findings of the second stage of EU-OSHA’s project to estimate the costs of occupational injuries, diseases and deaths at European level. Two approaches are developed to estimate costs: 1.a bottom-up approach based on individual components of costs — direct, indirect and intangible costs 2.a top-down approach based on international data on the economic burden of injury and disease. The cost estimations focus on five countries — Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Poland — for which sufficient data are available and which are representative...

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...
Rates of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in a State Workers’ Compensation Information System, by Industry and Occupation
California, 2007–2014 Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed as it passes through the wrist within the carpal tunnel, resulting in pain, tingling, weakness, or numbness in the hand or the wrist. Occupational risk factors for CTS include engaging in work activities that require forceful, repetitive tasks, prolonged use of the hands or wrists in an awkward posture, or vibration. To assess trends and identify high-risk industries and occupations for CTS, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) analyzed California workers' compensation claims...

Reoccurring Injury, Chronic Health Conditions, and Behavioral Health
Gender Differences in the Causes of Workers' Compensation Claims Objective: The aim of this study was o examine how work and nonwork health-related factors contribute to workers' compensation (WC) claims by gender. Methods: Workers (N = 16,926) were enrolled in the Pinnacol Assurance Health Risk Management study, a multiyear, longitudinal research program assessing small and medium-sized enterprises in Colorado. Hypotheses were tested using gender-stratified logistic regression models. Results: For both women and men, having incurred a prior WC claim increased the odds of a future claim...
Beyond Determining Compliance: How Can Workers’ Compensation Insurers’ Exposure Data Be Improved and Used?
The workers' compensation system can be used for more than processing work-related illness or injury insurance claims. The data collected through this system provide valuable information to identify how these injuries and illnesses happen, so that they can be prevented. In recent years, use of workers' compensation injury and illness data in the public health field has grown. However, occupational exposure data (also known as industrial hygiene data) collected by many workers' compensation insurers is understudied. If analyzed, these data may help identify priority hazards and trends...

The cost of work-related stress to society
A systematic review A systematic review of the available evidence examining the cost of work-related stress (WRS) would yield important insights into the magnitude of this social phenomenon. The objective of this review was to collate, extract, and synthesize economic evaluations of the cost of WRS to society. A research protocol was developed. Included cost-of-illness (COI) studies estimated the cost of WRS at a societal level, and were published in English, French or German. Searches were carried out in ingentaconnect, EBSCO, JSTOR, Science Direct, Web of Knowledge, Google, and Google scholar...

Linking Compensation and Health Surveillance Data Sets to Improve Knowledge of US Coal Miners’ Health
Objective: Increase knowledge of US coal miners’ respiratory health by linking data from the black lung benefits program (BLBP) and the coal workers’ health surveillance program (CWHSP). Methods: BLBP claims data from 2000 through 2013 was linked to CWHSP data from 1970 through 2016. Results: Overall, 273,644 miners participated in CWHSP, 37,548 in BLBP, and 22,903 in both programs. Median age of miners at their time of first/only participation in CWHSP was 28 and 32 years, respectively. BLBP claimants were older (median age 59). Thirty-nine percent of BLBP claimants had not participated...

A Seven-Year Longitudinal Claim Analysis to Assess the Factors Contributing to the Increased Severity of Work-Related Injuries
Background: In recent decades, the frequency of Medical Only (MO) and Lost Time (LT) workers' compensation claims has decreased, while average severity (medical and indemnity costs) has increased.

Methods: Sixty-two thousand five hundred thirty-three claims during two periods (1999 to 2002 and 2003 to 2006) were followed seven years postinjury. Descriptive analysis and significant testing methods were used to compare claim frequency and costs. Results...
