Occupational accidents causation and typology in different activity sectors in Portugal

This joint project intends to make an in-depth and comprehensive study of accident causation. The aim is to investigate not only their immediate cause(s), which is the current state-of-the-art, but also, and more importantly, their ‘latent’ or ‘distal’ underlying factors within the working system. This is the first study of this nature in Portugal, and its main objective is to identify new improvement opportunities - and propose recommendations for the prevention of accidents at work, based on factual and well-founded evidence.
