1 Workplace Accidents in Europe Workplace safety and the rise of the permanently temporary worker Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 1/40

2 Introduction Erik Henningsen A wounded worker (National Gallery of Denmark) 1 Non-fatal: a discrete occurrence in the course of work which leads to physical or mental harm Note: statistics are usually on accidents at work that imply more than 3 days of absence Also note: commuting accidents are usually not included 2 Fatal: accidents at work that lead to the death of the victim within one year Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 2/40

3 Set-up of the presentation 1 Some numbers & some background 2 Previous studies 3 Developments and cross-country heterogeneity 4 Cross-country analysis 5 Meso analysis: Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden 6 Micro analysis: Italy 7 Conclusions Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 3/40

4 Some numbers on Workplace Accidents 2.2 million WPA in EU (2012) 4000 fatal WPA in EU (2012) Estimated costs % of GDP: 1 (UK) to 3 (Germany, Netherlands) Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 4/40

5 Occupational diseases Occupational disease = chronic ailment that occurs as a result of work or occupational activity Typically identified when more prevalent in a given body of workers than in the general population ILO 2008: 160,000 fatal work-related diseases; cancer leading cause: almost 100,000 Not part of our study Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 5/40

6 European OSH Strategy OSH = occupational health and safety at work European Directives: binding Minimum health and safety requirements for the protection of workers: Workplaces, equipment, signs, personal protective equipment Exposure to chemical agents, physical hazards, biological agents Provisions on workload, ergonomic and psychosocial risks Sector specific and worker related provisions Target: 25% reduction in the total incidence of accidents at work No similar target for occupational diseases Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 6/40

7 European OSH Strategy Focus on 1 Prevention 2 Rule simplification 3 Proper compliance with rules Balance between high level of protection and administrative burden on firms Minimum number of labor inspectors recommended by ILO = 1 per 10,000 workers has not been reached in about half of the member states Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 7/40

8 Previous studies on workplace accidents Industrial sector: construction & manufacturing more than other industries Gender: males more than females Firm size: larger firms more than small firms Job dissatisfaction: satisfied workers less than dissatisfied workers Nature of the job: monotony and lack of autonomy more than other types of work Focus of overview of previous studies 1 Cyclical fluctuations 2 Workplace safety policy 3 Nature of the contract Workplace Accidents in Europe Ali Palali Matteo Picchio Jan C. van Ours 8/40
