Abstract In Germany, data on fatal occupational accidents in industry are collected by means of a survey questionnaire developed by the German Factory Inspectorate (Gewerbeaufsicht) and the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA). It does not include data on non-occupational traffic and mining accidents. This report presents the results of the statistical analysis of fatal occupational accidents having occurred in 2001 and 2002. Data are presented by age, length of tenure, company size, time of the day, type of activity and accident cause. Data on accidents due to hazardous substances, workplaces with high fatal accidents rates, accidents due to falls and in-plant transport accidents are anaysed in greater detail.
