Abstract This project aims to provide defensible costs per case and total costs for occupational injuries and illnesses. We proposed to provide these costs by diagnosis, age, gender, occupation, industry and state wherever possible. In order to analyze the cost-effectiveness of safety interventions, we aimed to include estimates of the effect of ill-health on the quality of life of victims and their families and to provide illustrative cost-benefit analyses. We hoped to provide a clearer picture of who pays for occupational injuries and illnesses and finally, to provide a cost estimation model that the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) can routinely apply to their data on the incidence of occupational injuries and illnesses.
