Abstract

The aim of the study is to illustrate the design, potential uses and limitations of a new occupational surveillance system based on the linkage of work histories (INPS) and occupational injuries (INAIL). To validation of the system is very positive: The success of linkage between work histories and occupational injuries is very high for all the years considered; The comparison of the rates calculated using the WHIP-INAIL sample are highly coherent with what is currently published in Eurostat official statistics. Several preliminary examples of age and job variations in occupational injury risks illustrate the potential of the new system.
