||Due to accident severity and the extent of claim payments, commuting accidents are a significant expense factor in German industry. The aim of this study was to identify the risk factors for commuting accidents. A retrospective analysis of commuting accidents recorded between 1990 and 2003 was conducted in a major chemical company in Germany. A logistic regression-model was calculated in order to determine factors influencing the duration of work inability as a result of commuting accidents. The analysed data included 5,484 employees with commuting accidents. Findings are discussed. The study identifies specific groups at risk for commuting accidents and underlines the need for developing group-specific prevention strategies.
