The determinants of recurrent occupational accidents were examined for a small subset of 41 victims who had answered to a health-related questionnaire. Compared to age-matched controls with only one occupational accident, the subjects with at least two accidents were 3.2 times more likely to exercise less frequently, 3.2 times more likely to have relatives with diabetes and 2.6 times more likely to have symptoms of health problems.
The substantial reoccurrence of occupational accidents emphasizes the importance of assessing the prevention policies after each accident. Occupational accidents are related to work conditions and organizational practices but analysis of more in-depth data e.g. questionnaires may promote the means to improve the prevention policies of occupational accidents (e.g. violence-related) currently being diﬃcult to prevent.
