Bibliographic information 1995, Vol.1, No.3, p.304-307.
Abstract Data on fatal industrial accidents caused by alcohol in the Czech Republic are analyzed for the years 1983 to 1993. Over this period the frequency of these accidents decreased by 60% from the maximum (20) in 1983. The relative frequency per 100,000 workers decreased by almost 53% and the share of these accidents in the overall number of fatal industrial accidents decreased by almost 35%. More than 97% of accidents occurred in 10 economic sectors; 71% in the processing industries, agriculture and forestry, and construction. The main causes of accidents were falls, trapping, hitting, crashes and explosions.
