Baghdadi M, Allami H, Raougui D, Fadli M

Workplace accidents are common among workers in all public private or sectors. The objectives of this study are to describe the profile of these work-related accidents between 2001 and 2016 in the Gharb region and to specify the accountability of certain factors such as gender and the type of sector. This is a survey of 1384 workers who have been involved in a work accident, of which 88.87% (n = 1230) are male and 11.13% (n = 154) are female. The results confirm that sex and the type of work sector are two major factors in determining the severity and therefore the fate of the victim. The accident rate varies according to the years and the average annual rate is increasing during the fifteen years of study. The causes of accidents vary by sector however negligence, stress and weather conditions could be considered as major factors. Thus, the results of this study could be taken into account in the case of the development of certain strategies of struggle to reduce the scale of this phenomenon.
