Calculating occupational risks
There are various types of occupational accidents that can occur during work. For example, people can fall from a ladder or become involved in an accident with a machine. In 2003, RIVM started a project aimed at calculating the risk of an occupational accident. For that purpose, databases were created, various projects were carried out, and a calculation model was developed. The calculation model and associated tools are no longer actively managed. However, the methodology remains available. This page provides a brief historical overview of the available information.
