Occupational disparities in accidents and roles of lifestyle factors and disabilities : a population-based study in north-eastern France

Abstract : OBJECTIVE: To assess occupational disparities with regard to the occurrence of occupational, traffic, domestic and sports accidents, and the role of factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, psychotropic drug intake and disability in mediating these disparities. CONCLUSION: Occupational disparities in accidents mainly concern men and are predominantly observed in occupational and traffic accidents. Lifestyle factors do play a role in explaining these disparities, but are fairly limited. Improved work conditions, equipment, health behaviours, safe driving practices and accommodation of people with disabilities are needed to reduce the risk of accidents.
