Registration of Occupational Injuries
Registration of occupational injuries is the process of collecting and recording data on occupational injuries. Registration could be organized on the enterprise, local community, regional, state, or national level. National laws specify the procedures for registration of occupational accidents as well as identifying persons responsible for submitting the information on occupational accidents. In most countries, the employer is responsible for submitting data on occupational accidents. Each country decides on the amount and the structure of data in the occupational accident reporting form. This huge variability among countries means that only basic comparison is possible on an international level.
