Resolution concerning statistics of occupational injuries (resulting from occupational accidents)

Adopted by the 16th ICLS (1998), this resolution sets standards of good practice for the collection and presentation of statistics of occupational injuries as guidance for countries wishing to revise their existing statistical systems in this field, or establish new ones. Its provisions should not undermine any existing national systems, nor should they lead to duplication of effort.
