Occupational ICE on injury.
Proceedings of the International Collaborative Effort on Injury Statistics. Vol. IV. Hyattsville, MD: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), 2003 Aug; :6-1-6-3
The Occupational ICE on injury group is continuing to collaborate on international comparisons of fatal occupational injuries, and proposes to launch several new efforts. A comparison of fatal work-related injuries in the US, New Zealand, and Australia has resulted in three journal articles. Continuing this effort, the collaborative group is exploring an international comparison of work-related motor vehicle fatalities. Motor-vehicle related deaths had not previously been available from all three countries. Differences and similarities between the three countries in the characteristics of these incidents and the workers involved will shed new light on this leading cause of death to workers. An effort to expand international comparisons to include more countries is also being launched. As a first step, the Occupational ICE group is seeking information from other ICE members on the sources, definitions, and characteristics of their national data on occupational fatal injuries. The goal of this inquiry is to determine the comparability of such data from other nations and thus the ability to include a broader array of countries in an analytic comparison of international data that are truly comparable.
