Abstract Overview of the situation in 1985 (number of workers and accidents, cost of insurance in comparison with 1984). Data for various time periods (back to 1949 in some cases) are presented in graphs and statistical tables: declared occupational accidents and diseases; fatal accidents and diseases; commuting accidents; rates of accidents and diseases by branch of industry; rates of declared and compensated diseases by group of worker and by disease. Skin diseases were most frequent, with 11,602 reported cases, followed by noise-induced hearing loss (8,828 cases), infectious diseases (3,286 cases) and silicosis (3,258 cases). A review of the organisation and activity of the mutual accident insurance associations and a list of occupational safety and health regulations are also presented.
