Abstract

Objectives: To measure the risk and the trend of job-related injuries among people employed in Sarcheshmeh Copper Mine Complex in Kerman (SCMC), Southeast of Iran. Methodology: In this Longitudinal incidence study, all workers in SCMC between 2001 and 2005 were followed. All injuries due to job-related accidents were documented. Information was recorded on a check List by a trained expert. Parametric and non-parametric tests were used to compare groups where appropriate. Significant differences between incidences rates were noted where the 95 confidence interval of the relative risk (RR) excluded unity. Results: More than 5600 people were working and a total number of 735 injuries were reported giving an overall five-year incidence rate of 131 per 1000 five PYAR. In 71.4 of cases, the accident was due to carelessness. The mean number of Lost days for each injured case was 26.9+/-27.9. Conclusion: The risk of experiencing a serious injury among SCMC workers is considerably high. Although, the risk of job-related accidents in SCMC between 2002 and 2005 decreased, an occupational health education program is strongly suggested.
