||Jan. 2007, Vol.50, No.1, p.13-21. Illus. 46 ref.
||Women's occupational injury rates are converging with those of men. In this study, the associations between working womens' hospital treated injury rates, industrial sector and injured body area were analyzed to provide better-focused injury prevention of women's hazardous jobs. Women's standardized hospital treatment ratios (SHR) and the excess fraction for five body regions (head/neck, thorax, back, upper and lower extremities) were calculated for 58 industrial sectors in Denmark for 1999-2003. Five industrial sectors had significantly high SHRs for all body regions. These were: cleaning, laundries and dry cleaning; transport of passengers; hotels and restaurants; hospitals; transport of goods.
