Methods and Analysis of Economic Impact of Workplace Injury

DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2011-117
cover of 2011-117

Each year nearly 4.5 million injuries occur that are associated with workplace events. Individuals affected often become unable to work, their ability to work is limited by physical impairment, or more tragically they die. On a typical day, 9,000 U.S. workers sustain disabling injuries and 15 workers die from an injury. Understanding the total human and economic impacts of occupational injuries is crucial to setting priorities and shaping other components of the occupational safety and health research agenda.
