Abstract
Probability models are an attempt to describe the random mechanism underlying events for which the outcome is uncertain. In injury risk assessment, these models provide the basis for developing and evaluating summary measures of the incidence of occupational injuries for comparison of occupations and industries. Probability models are used to represent the mechanism by which injuries occur to some individuals, while other individuals are not injuired, under similar circumstances. Methods for statistical analysis of occupational injury data require assumptions based on a reasonable mechanism describing the random nature of the occurrence of events, after accounting for all observalbe injury determinants.
