Título The use of a mixed Weibull model in occupational injury analysis
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1986, Vol.7, No.4, p.239-251. Illus. 11 ref.
Resumen Description of a mixed Weibull model which is proposed as an alternative model of occupational injury analysis. This model assumes that a worker will suffer injuries during employment with a probability γ(0<γ<1). The conditional failure time model is defined to be a Weibull distribution. Given the model, the relationship between minor and major injury incidents is examined using the injury data of 1,004 workers in a US manufacture. The efficacy of the model is apparent in that it provides a fraction of long term survivors as well as an injury rate for those ever suffering an injury.
