Accidents in the light of official statistics - Some comments on the "under-reporting" of occupational accidents in the Netherlands
Ongevallen in het licht van officiële cijfers - Over de "onderregistratie" van arbeidsongevallen in Nederland [in Dutch]
The integration in 1967 of the Dutch Law on Accidents within a single Law on Sickness has had unfavourable consequences for the declaration and registration ("under-registration") of occupational accidents, since no differentiation is made any more between sickness, occupational accidents, accidents due to other causes, and occupational diseases. A comparison is made between the organisation and structure of information available to accident insurance bodies in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and those resulting from the Dutch Law on Health Insurance. A comparison of the trends in the incidence of occupational accidents in the 2 countries between 1970 and 1981 reveals that the declared accident rate in FRG was systematically 3 times as high as in the Netherlands. A similar relation existed for declared fatal accidents. The importance of this "under-registration" is discussed.

Occupational safety in the North Sea. A review of fatalities, injuries and reporting procedures in offshore exploration and production 1975-1981
This review describes and analyses data on personal injuries associated with offshore operations in the North Sea and examines the methods of recording and presenting the data. Data from the United Kingdom, Norwegian, Danish and Dutch sectors are not directly comparable because the national safety agencies concerned use different reporting systems. The data nonetheless show that fatality rates in the UK and Norwegian sectors declined in the period 1975-1981, that common factors determined the pattern of accidents in the UK and Norwegian sectors, that fatalities in the Danish and Dutch sectors appear to be contained, that the proportion of the total working population killed or seriously injured has generally been lower than in several onshore industries and that the ratio of fatalities to serious injuries is higher offshore than onshore. Because accurate and authoritative information requires uniform definitions of accident types and severity, as well as reliable man-power data, it is suggested that industry take the initiative in promoting collaboration between national governmental agencies and industrial concerns.

Reporting noninjury accidents: a tool in accident prevention
Study undertaken to find out whether a system for the voluntary reporting of non-injury accidents is useful in accident prevention work. A reporting system was set up in a 1800-worker steel plant, and 2 reporting campaigns were organised. The resulting reports on 52 non-injury accidents and 152 injury accidents were analysed. It was concluded that: the reporting system reveals particularly serious injury risks, and allows measures to be taken before injuries occur; reporting experience varies from department to department; the system highlights risks not shown in accident statistics and allows safety priorities to be modified; the system promotes personnel safety consciousness.

A Swedish cancer-environment register available for research
The information in the Swedish Cancer Register has been improved by merging information from the 1960 census on occupation, main occupation during the year, economic activity, type of activity, occupational status, gainful employment, domicile, place of work, country of birth and higher education. This register is available to interested scientists in all countries. It can be used in epidemiologic studies on the relationship of occupation, and other factors, to the incidence of different types of cancer.

Estimating changes in accident statistics due to reporting requirement changes.
The analysis of accident data is made complicated by changes in requirements for reporting accidents. Such changes can obscure or magnify apparent effects of safety programs and of any evaluation based on the reportable accident statistics. A general methodoloy for estimating the magnitude of change due to the reporting procedure is discussed. The procedure is based on Box-Jenkins time series analysis. An example from South Dakota accident statistics illustrates the procedure.

The Finnish Occupational Disease Register, 1977 - Occupational diseases reported in 1977.
The Register is described with its source of data, structure, data recorded and shortcomings; the Finnish Occupational Disease Act and Ordinance of 1967 are quoted. The statistics are divided into a section on all diseases except skin diseases and another on skin diseases. The former is arranged by age distribution, industry, hearing loss, repetitive work, and causes of disease. Some data from previous years are given for comparison. Skin diseases are reported by age, industry and causes. For the cases registered in the period 1964 - 1974, see CIS 77 - 1492.

Accident reporting - An exercise in futility?
Present accident reporting systems do not adequately inform safety engineers, standards writers, and other safety professionals so that accidents can be reduced. Items recommended include identification of the hazard; description of the agency causing the accident; list of principal uses of the agency; and description of the accident area. The emphasis on information for insurance purposes is considered ineffective for reducing accidents. Court decisions in the U.S. are noted as giving priority to safety by design.

Occupational diseases listed in the Occupational Disease Register of Finland in 1964-1974 - An academic dissertation
Suomen ammattitautirekisteriin ilmoitetut ammattitaudit vuosina 1964-74 [in Finnish]
Research report concerning 6,429 cases. The most common diseases were caused by noise, vibration, bacteria and viruses, repetitive movements, lead, quartz and asbestos dust. The activities with the greatest risk were non-metal mining, metal ore mining and basic metal industries; those with lowest risk were transport and storage, retail trade and restaurant and hotel activities. As an example of the evaluation of industrial diseases, there was a tendency for lead poisoning to decrease during the period 1969-1974. A questionnaire survey of asthma or allergic rhinitis sufferers was made; fluor was the most common allergen. The social implications of exposure and compensation are dealt with. English summary.

Mesothelioma Register 1967-68.
A register of mesothelioma cases is maintained by the Employment Medical Advisory Service of the Department of Employment. This paper describes an investigation of 413 notifications to the Register in 1967-68 from England, Wales and Scotland. Cases were described as definite when histological confirmation of diagnosis had been obtained. 246 cases were accepted as definite, 76 were regarded as "definitely not" mesothelioma. The remainder were classified as undecided. The investigation covers clinical aspects, survival and evidence of exposure to asbestos.

Bladder tumours and occupation: a coroner's notification scheme.
In order to investigate the importance of occupational factors in the aetiology of bladder cancer, a coroner's notification scheme for all bladder tumours occurring within a defined industrial area was instituted. Every death certificate on which a bladder tumour was recorded was notified to the coroner's office within a 6 year period (1965-1970). In almost all cases a necropsy was carried out to confirm diagnosis. An inquiry into the occupational history was conducted and related to 2 industrial checklists. It was found that about 20% of persons dying of this disease had a suspicious history of exposure to a carcinogen, which accords broadly with other recent surveys whose methodology was different.
