Estimating the cost of work-related accidents and ill-health: An analysis of European data sources

This report presents the results of a survey of national and international data sources on the costs of work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths.

The aim was to evaluate the quality and comparability of different sources as a first step towards estimating the costs of accidents and ill-health at work in Europe.

The survey found that there were insufficient data to determine these costs exactly; however, recommendations are made on using estimates to bridge the data gap.
