||Rate of occupational accidents in the mining industry since 1950 - A successful approach to prevention policy
||2002, Vol.33, No.1, p.129-141. Illus. 5 ref.
||This paper discusses the decrease in occupational accident insurance claims in the German mining industry over the last five decades. It shows that this process is above all the result of a prevention policy involving collaboration between companies and the body responsible for the legal accident insurance scheme in the mining industry. A system such as the German accident insurance scheme, combining prevention, rehabilitation and compensation, enables successful and modern safety and health measures.
