ABSTRACT

The prevention of occupationally related trauma and disease requires reliable measurement systems in order to target the relevant exposures and injury problems and prioritise resources. Social and workers' compensation insurance data, with exposure, coverage, accident process, medical severity and other outcome information, represents the most credible basis for decisions on preventative action.

The registration and measurement system for occupational trauma and disease, based on the ACC New Zealand paradigm, has been developed by the Swedish Labour Market Insurances, and is also the basis for the new EU occupational injury registration system

Some different target areas for occupational injury prevention, and examples of successful intervention activities, are reported from Swedish and Australian systems.

To support the industrial management of safety requires good and industry-relevant measurement systems for occupational risk and the consequences of occupational trauma and disease. The development of such specific recording and measurement systems in Swedish branches of industry is based on union-employer consensus about occupational risk and a joint approach to safety management. Aggregate statistical information is of limited use for applied prevention; the accident and injury data must be more specific and detailed in order to be turned into credible decision support systems (DSS).

Some different examples of industry-based safety management and decision support systems from Sweden are presented.

Results from a study on the relation between best-of-sector industrial safety management and shareholder value on the ASX are also presented.
