Título Fatal occupational accidents in Ontario, 1986-1989
Información bibliográfica Feb. 1993, Vol.23, No.2, p.253-264. 13 ref.
Resumen 470 fatal occupational accidents occurring in Ontario (Canada) between 1986 and 1989 and meeting eligibility criteria were examined. Homicides and most accidents on public roads were excluded. Information was obtained from coroners' files and records of the provincial Ministry of Labour. Levels of alcohol likely to produce impairment were found in six subjects (2% of the two-thirds of fatalities tested). Cannabis was detected in 3.9% of cases (17% of those tested), but other illegal drugs were not found. Recommendations of coroner's juries showed that organisational factors were considered relevant on many occasions. The incidence rate rose steadily with age. Other data items were examined, although, because of missing information for many of them, the conclusions that can be drawn are limited. More fatal accidents occurred in the first half of the shift than in the second half.
