||Employer costs of alcohol-involved injuries
||Feb. 2007, Vol.50, No.2, p.136-142. 44 ref.
||This study estimates the annual cost of alcohol-related injuries to employers in the United States. Incidence was estimated with occupational injury data, motor vehicle crash data and health care data for 1998-2000. Employer costs were estimated from Federal estimates of injury costs by source of compensation payment using data on the percentage paid by employers. Thus the annual employer costs of alcohol-related injuries to employees and their dependents were found to exceed USD 28.6 billion. Out of this, USD 13.2 billion comes from job-related, alcohol-involved injuries. The annual employer cost of motor vehicle crashes in which at least one driver was alcohol-impaired is over USD 9.2 billion. Out of this, only USD 3.4 billion comes from job-related alcohol involvement.
