  2. 2. Serious occupational injuries by "accidents" possible means of prevention and injury mitigation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Torgny Jarl; Umeå universitet.; [1989]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Occupational; accident; injury; prevention; personal safety equipment; emergency action; commercial vehicles;

    Abstract : An analysis of the circumstances preceding severe occupational injuries as a consequence of impacts has shown that well-known risks are of great importance in 75 per cent of the cases. This indicates that the subjective cause "neglect" is common. The negligence is distributed to the same extent among employers as among employees. READ MORE
