||To determine whether depressive symptoms had an effect on the risk of occupational accidents, a survey of 1350 workers at 44 small and medium enterprises in Korea was carried out by means of questionnaires. A first survey requested information regarding personal characteristics, work characteristics, and depressive symptoms; the second questionnaire queried participants about occupational injuries (including minor scratches or cuts) experienced in the previous four months. Risk ratios (RRs) of injuries were calculated through Poisson regression analysis. After adjustment for demographic factors, the RRs were 1.75 and 2.68 in men and women, respectively. Other findings are discussed.
