Abstract

The estimation of overall costs incurred due to occupational accident is valuable for emphasising the importance of accident prevention and for evaluating the cost-effectiveness of safety investments. The costs vary greatly depending on the seriousness of the injury and whether quality damages or production losses have occurred. The same cost estimates and calculation models are not valid for all industries. This study reviews and discusses the current overall cost calculation and estimation models for occupational accident. This study utilises the results of two questionnaires directed to Finnish organisations
