Abstract

Occupational accidents with physical and mental injury in relation with sickness absence

Occupational accidents with physical and mental injury in relation with sickness absence

The central question in this article is to what extent physical and mental injury due to an occupational accident are related to sickness absence. We analysed a large database with data from 10,075 Dutch employees, that is representative for employees in the Netherlands with regard to gender, age and branch of industry. The results show that employees with mental injury due to an occupational accident are absent from work for more days in the past 12 months than employees without an occupational accident or employees with physical injury due to an occupational accident. Moreover, employees with mental injury due to an occupational accident seem to underestimate their accident related absence, whereas employees with physical injury seem more accurate in the accident related absence they report.
