||Arbetsmiljöinstitutet, Förlagstjänst, 171 84 Solna, Sweden, 1992. 83p. 25 ref.
||An analysis was made of data collected on 205 accidents involving foundry workers, retool and maintenance workers, mechanical testers, metal machine workers, welders and surface treaters during a two-year period (1986-87). The variables used to characterise the accidents are described along with the methodology used to analyse the accident characteristics and the results: eight accident scenarios were identified. The data could serve as a basis for the identification of preventive measures aimed at correcting hazardous situations or at reducing the probability of some types of accidents.
