Título An epidemiologic evaluation of the injury experience of a cohort of automotive parts workers: A model for surveillance in small industries
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1989, Vol.10, No.4, p.239-253. 11 ref.
Resumen Description of a prototype project for the development of an injury/illness surveillance system within an established network of occupational health centres. The purpose of this system would be to provide an epidemiologic data base to participating companies so that they can quickly identify and correct potential problem areas. An epidemic of injuries occurring in a company served by the network provided the opportunity to test the usefulness of a select core set of variables which could be used for surveillance of occupational injury and illness trends, for the development of hypotheses regarding causative mechanisms for common workplace injuries, and for the evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions in small industries.
