Bibliographic information June 2010, Vol.48, No.5, p.640-642. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract This study examines the epidemiological characteristics on fatal accidents in China. Data of the State Administration of Work Safety on accidents that caused more than nine deaths each having occurred between January 1st, 2001 and December 31st, 2008 were analysed. Nine hundred and sixty two occupational-related fatal accidents were found in 31 provinces, causing 17,112 deaths and 8222 injuries. The occurrence of occupational accidents can be associated with risk factors from multiple perspectives such as workers, occupational environment, social environment, natural environment, regulations, and injury objects. Strength of supervision and adjustment of public health policy are needed in China to decrease the occurrence rate of fatal accidents.
