Información bibliográfica 1st quarter 2011, Vol. 17, No.1, p.38-48. Illus. 37 ref.
Resumen This study is based on the analysis of data on non-fatal occupational injuries reported to Malaysia's social security organization from 2002 to 2006. There was a decrease in both the absolute number and the incidence rates of these injuries over time. About 40% of cases occurred in the manufacturing sector followed by the services (17%) and trading (17%) sectors. Agriculture sector reported the highest incidence rate (24.1/1000), followed by the manufacturing sector subcategories of wood-product manufacturing (22.1/1000) and non-metallic industries (20.8/1000). Men aged 40 to 59 and persons of Indian ethnicity had a greater tendency to sustain injuries. Implications of these findings are discussed.
