Title Accidents encountered in the engine workshops of a Swedish automobile and truck factory: their most common circumstances and consequences
Bibliographic information Arbetsmiljöinstitutet, Förlagstjänst, 171 84 Solna, Sweden, 1990. 103p. 22 ref.
Abstract Statistics on accident characteristics were compiled on the basis of the 178 accident declaration forms filled during 1986 and 1987. Data on a total of 35 variables were collected. Seven typical accident patterns were portrayed. It was observed that accidents of any pattern might occur in either of the workshops studied, but that their distribution varies according to the occupational group, the production steps and the tasks performed by the injuried workers. The accident frequency varies considerably from one occupational group to another, and for some groups, from workshop to workshop.
