Economic evaluation of interventions for occupational health and safety : developing good practice by Roman Dolinschi( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book aims to lay the foundations for a systematic methodology of economic evaluation of occupational health and safety interventions by identifying the main barriers to research of high quality and practical relevance, and proposing a research strategy to overcome them. Context chapters provide a wealth of background material ranging from a presentation of the broad conceptualization of work and health, to suggestions for strategies on how to confront the dearth of data often experienced by occupational health and safety researchers. The institutional and regulatory approaches in different international jurisdictions are covered in one of the context chapters. Specific topic chapters delve into the principles and application of economic evaluation methods relevant to workplace and system level interventions. Study design, type of analysis, costs, consequences, uncertainty, and equity are all covered, providing guidance on meeting many analytical and decision-making challenges. The final chapter synthesizes the summaries, conclusions, challenges, and recommendations from across the book, presenting the synthesis as a reference case." "This book is essential reading for researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and both educators and students involved in occupational health and safety, public health, health promotion, and health economics."--Jacket

The value of occupational safety and health and the societal costs of work-related injuries and diseases( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need to improve working life in the European Union (EU) is still urgent today. In 2016, approximately 2.4 million non-fatal accidents requiring at least 4 days of absence from work and 3,182 fatal accidents were reported in EU Member States. In addition to these accident rates, figures from 2013 show that 7.9 % of the workforce suffered from occupational health problems, of which 36% resulted in absence from work for at least 4 days (Eurostat, 2018a, 2018c). These occupational injuries, diseases and deaths result in high economic costs to individuals, employers, governments and society. Negative effects may include costly early retirement, the loss of skilled staff, absenteeism as well as presenteeism (when employees go to work despite illness, increasing the likelihood of mistakes) and high medical costs and insurance premiums. In a previous project, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) estimated that 3.9 % of global gross domestic product (GDP) and 3.3 % of European GDP is spent on dealing with occupational injuries and diseases (EU-OSHA, 2017a). This percentage may vary widely between countries, in particular between western and non-western countries, depending on the industrial mix, legislative context and prevention incentives. Understanding the magnitude of the problem calls for a reliable and comprehensive estimate of occupational injury and disease costs to society. It is vital for policy-makers to be aware of these costs to help them to set priorities. Insight into the financial consequences of occupational injury and disease provides governments, policy-makers and employers’ organisations with relevant data for the purpose of developing occupational safety and health (OSH) policies and agreements. Moreover, insight into these costs will help to raise awareness of the magnitude of the problem and will contribute to a more efficient allocation of resources for OSH
Managing Safety and Operations: The Effect of Joint Management System Practices on Safety and Operational Outcomes( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Objective: The aim of this study was to determine whether management system practices directed at both occupational health and safety (OHS) and operations (joint management system [JMS] practices) result in better outcomes in both areas than in alternative practices. Methods: Separate regressions were estimated for OHS and operational outcomes using data from a survey along with administrative records on injuries and illnesses. Results: Organizations with JMS practices had better operational and safety outcomes than organizations without these practices. They had similar OHS outcomes as those with operations-weak practices, and in some cases, better outcomes than organizations with safety-weak practices. They had similar operational outcomes as those with safety-weak practices, and better outcomes than those with operations-weak practices. Conclusions: Safety and operations appear complementary in organizations with JMS practices in that there is no penalty for either safety or operational outcomes

A Comparative Analysis of the Financial Incentives of Two Distinct Experience-Rating Programs( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare the association between insurance premium incentives and claim outcomes in two different workers' compensation programs. Methods: Regression models were run for claim outcomes using data from two Canadian jurisdictions with different experience-rating programs--one with prospective (British Columbia) and another with retrospective (Ontario) adjustment of premiums. Key explanatory variables were past premium adjustments. Results: For both programs, past premium adjustments were significantly associated with claim outcomes, suggesting adjustments provided incentives for claims reduction. The magnitudes of effects in the prospective program were smaller than the retrospective one, though relative persistence of effects over time was larger. Conclusion: Having large and immediate employer responses to incentives may appear desirable, but insurers should consider the time required for employers to improve and sustain good practices, and create incentives that parallel such time lines
