Abstract Medical insurance claims filed by workers undertaking work-related travel were compared with claims of non-travellers. Overall, rates of insurance claims were 80% higher for men and 18% higher for women travellers than for their non-travelling counterparts. The most frequent problems were infectious disease and psychological disorders. Several associations with frequency of travel were found. Topics: epidemiologic study; frequency rates; health hazards; infectious diseases; mental disorders; psychological effects; transport of persons; workmen's compensation.
