||This article presents a mathematical model for estimating trends in the rate of occupational accidents as a function of the level of employment, based on the hypothesis that the number of accidents is a function of the number of workers employed, workload and degree of risk of the work. This model is used for analysing the trends in accidents during the period ranging from 1994 to 1999 and to estimate the accidents avoided thanks to improvements in working conditions and safety from 1977 to 1999.
