This manual aims to assist those 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 compiled through notification systems. 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.
The manual 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, as well as types of data, classification schemes, calculation of indicators and other important aspects, including international standards
- Step-by-step approach for developing household and establishment surveys and processing and disseminating the data
- Model questionnaires and training materials
