Title: Proof of concept - work accident costs analysis tool
Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: The occupational safety and health system has become increasingly visible at workplace. This article presents a proof concept of a computer tool, which allows the analysis of costs associated with work accidents. To achieve this goal, a computer support tool was developed as an aid to its analysis. At this point a brief study of the accident cost is attached. The tool was implemented on MSExcel and tested using data from heath sector. A brief analysis of general labor costs, in a discriminatory manner was done. It was concluded that the tool is extremely useful as it allows to evaluate the costs associated with labor accidents and compares them with the implementation costs and amounts charged by the insurers.
