||The European Statistics of Accidents at Work (ESAW) project, aimed at harmonizing statistical data on occupational accidents, was launched in 1990 following the Framework Directive on occupational safety and health (89/391/EEC). Since 1993, Eurostat has compiled statistics on occupational accidents based on data provided by the responsible bodies within the Member States. This study was carried out to identify and analyse factors that could distort national data and make comparisons difficult. A questionnaire consisting of 83 items grouped under 12 topics such as notification, compensation or the treatment of statistical data was addressed to European Union Member States. Three main factors were identified as being responsible for biases in data comparisons: coverage of self-employed workers, treatment of travel and traffic accidents, and the proportion of total accidents declared.
