  1. Injuries after falls at work in the United Kingdom and Sweden with special reference to fractures in women over 45.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives-To describe the relation with age of risk of reported injury after a fall among women at work in two countries, the United Kingdom and Sweden, with particular emphasis on fractures, and to interpret these data.

    Methods-Rates of accidents compiled under the national reporting regulations of each country during a two year period were described by age, sex, cause (fall on the level, fall from a height, other), and occurrence of fracture, with emphasis on the relative risk (RR) in workers aged 45 years and over compared with those aged under 45.

    For fractures (major fractures only in the United Kingdom) among women, RRs were calculated for all occupations, with the three digit occupational classification schemes of each country.

    RRs for older versus younger women, directly standardised for occupation, were derived.

    Results

    Among women, RRs for injury after a fall on the level and fall from a height were 2.77 and 1.77 respectively in Sweden and 2.28 and 1.54 in the United Kingdom.

    When restricted to fractures, the RRs became 4.75 and 3.66 respectively in Sweden and 3.35 and 1.97 in the United Kingdom.

    Standardisation for occupation gave RRs for fractures of 4.87 and 3.75 in Sweden and 3.43 and 2.16 in the United Kingdom.

    Almost all occupational groups with enough fractures for analysis showed an excess of fractures related to falls among older women. (...)
