Title Expanding definitions of work-relatedness beyond the worker
Bibliographic information Dec. 2009, Vol.25, No.6, p.461-475. Illus. 61 ref.
Abstract This article presents a classification system developed to identify and categorize an expanded range of injury death connected to work. It involved a review of existing definitions, classification systems and research studies on work-related injury. The system was then tested on all 1496 injury deaths in the Australian State of Victoria. The application of the system resulted in the classification of 286 (19.1%) deaths as involving some degree of work-relatedness.
