Accidents at work represent, globally, a significant social and business cost for all production processes and working sectors. With a view to achieve the Sustainability Goals shared in the 2030 Agenda, it is necessary to design tools that can analyze and monitor the costs related to the accidents phenomenon, to support the Public Administration in defining effective strategies for the implementation of health and safety in the workplace and to reduce the costs related to the phenomenon of injuries. On the basis of an analysis of the literature referring to existing models used to calculate the costs of the accident phenomenon, this research proposes a methodological approach to calculate the costs incurred, both in case and in the absence of injury by the main stakeholders (worker, enterprise, state, society) with reference to four different scenarios. The methodological approach can be used to different product sectors and different geographical contexts and could be used to compare the effectiveness of different political strategies.

Abstract

Accidents at work represent, globally, a significant social and business cost for all production processes and working sectors. With a view to achieve the Sustainability Goals shared in the 2030 Agenda, it is necessary to design tools that can analyze and monitor the costs related to the accidents phenomenon, to support the Public Administration in defining effective strategies for the implementation of health and safety in the workplace and to reduce the costs related to the phenomenon of injuries. On the basis of an analysis of the literature referring to existing models used to calculate the costs of the accident phenomenon, this research proposes a methodological approach to calculate the costs incurred, both in case and in the absence of injury by the main stakeholders (worker, enterprise, state, society) with reference to four different scenarios. The methodological approach can be used to different product sectors and different geographical contexts and could be used to compare the effectiveness of different political strategies.
