Abstract This document analyzes the occupational accident statistics in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the year 2009, together with the financing by enterprises of occupational hazard insurance coverage. The contributions paid by employers as a percentage of payroll costs vary according to the size of the enterprise. A significant correlation is observed between the contribution rate and informality, with small enterprises employing 1-5 workers paying more than 7% and having a 69-85% rate of informality.
