Abstract This manual aims to assist persons responsible for compiling data on occupational injuries with newly developed tools for collecting these data from household surveys and establishment surveys, to supplement the data available from official sources of information. A second aim of the manual is to enhance compatibility of data between countries by encouraging the application of the latest international statistical standards, which form the basis of the new methodological tools. It provides: practical guidance for the production of statistics on occupational injuries through household surveys and establishment surveys; in-depth explanation of the concepts underlying the statistics, including the types of data, classification schemes, indicators and international standards; a step-by-step approach for developing household and establishment surveys and processing and disseminating the data; model questionnaires; training materials.
