Resumen This study examined the impact of serious workplace-related injury and ill health on individuals in two work sectors identified as priority areas, namely the construction sector and the healthcare sector. It involved telephone interviews with a sample of employees who had experienced a serious workplace accident or suffered from a reportable illness, followed by personal home interviews with a limited subset of the more serious cases and their family members. The study shows that serious work-related accidents and illnesses can have a widespread impact on individuals and their families. Many may be unable to return to work, need a change of job or role to accommodate new restrictions, or approach their work with a level of caution not previously in evidence. Many also experience physical problems and economic consequences, both in terms of loss of income and the need for extra expenditure associated with the accident or illness.
