||Employee accidents: Influences of personal characteristics, job characteristics, and substance use in jobs differing in accident potential
||Winter 1993, Vol.24, No.4, p.205-221. 43 ref.
||Relationships between employee substance use and accidents at work were assessed in a sample of municipal employees in the USA. Employees were classified into low- and high-risk job samples and discriminant function analyses were carried out to classify employees into "no accident" and "some accident" classifications. Variables from personal, job and substance use domains were used as discriminators. Employees likely to have accidents tended to have dysfunctional personal backgrounds and reported that they were dissatisfied and tense at work. Drug and alcohol use were major discriminators of accident groups for the high-risk job sample but not for the low-risk job sample.
