Economic Burden of Occupational Injury and Illness in the United States
Milbank Quarterly 2011 Dec; 89(4): 728-772
This NIOSH-funded study estimated the cost of occupational injuries and illnesses in 2007 to be approximately $250 billion, $31 billion more than the cost of all cancers and $76 billion more than the cost of diabetes. The study presented statistics on occupational injuries and illnesses and their respective costs for U.S. civilian workers, including those of self-employed, agricultural, and federal workers. The cost estimates of fatal injuries and nonfatal injuries and illnesses were incidence based (tracked current and anticipated future costs of new injuries and illnesses) and were complemented with prevalence based (tracked current and past costs of prevalent illnesses) cost estimates for fatal illnesses.
