work place accidents

January and February are the cruelest months

Published söndag 6 februari 2011 kl 16.58

According to a new study, January and February are the most dangerous months on the job. The reason, says researcher Sten Gellerstedt, is simple: snow, cold and darkness.

Gellerstedt carried out his study for the Swedish Trade Union Confederation’s unit for working life. People who work outdoors are the most affected, he found, especially those in the construction and forestry industries.

Others at greater risk in Winter are those who deliver mail and newspapers. On the other hand, he says traffic accidents do not increase during the Winter here, possibly because motorists drive faster and with less care during the Summer.

Gellerstedt says more research is needed into accidents at work during the Winter. He points out that in farming communities in the past there was less work during the Winter, and perhaps people aren’t made to work as hard then.
