Some determinants of reporting workplace accidents in France: The role of labour contract
This article uses a unique French survey that makes it possible to explore various individual determinants of workplace accident reporting. This survey covers a representative sample of 13,000 private- sector employees. Some 10% of workers suffer at least one workplace injury each year and that only 80% report it to the social security. A multivariate analysis with sample selection shows that severity and types of injury are clear determinants of reporting. Low-educated, but with a first degree, workers and workers in large firms seem to more likely report their injuries, and managers less. In addition, workers recently hired or on probation for a permanent job and previously unemployed or on a precarious position are significantly less likely to file a claim. This result suggests that labour market conditions can influence reporting.
