REINOSO-BARBERO, Luis et al. Occupational traffic injuries in workers from a Spanish bank company (2007-2013). Arch Prev Riesgos Labor [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.4, pp.185-191. ISSN 1578-2549.

Objective: To study physical harm caused by road accidents (LATT in Spanish) among employees of a Spanish financial institution from 2007 to 2013. Additionally, we tried to define damage features in each sex and at different ages in hurt patients, as well as work disability caused by this type of injury. Methods: Cross-sectional study of labor injuries verified by the occupational medical service of the bank. Absolute (n) and relative (%) frequencies related to interesting variables were described. Chi-square test was used to assess correlation. Results: Along the mentioned period of time, 1.517 traumatic occupational injuries were recorded on a population of 14.541 workers. 27% of them were LATT. 1,3% of these were fatal or seriously harmful, significantly associated to sex and age (p< 0,05). Co-driver damage, LATT in itinere and twist or sprain were more common in women. LATT at work and closed fractures were more frequent in men. Work disability caused by LATT was higher than other traumatic occupational injuries. Conclusions: LATT in the studied sample were almost three times higher than LATT are among general Spanish population, but serious lesions in our group were less common. We observed differences in LATT distribution by sexes and ages in workers included in this study, and also a higher incidence of work disability compared to the whole traumatic occupational injuries. Public health and occupational health authorities must find efficient strategies in order to diminish the incidence of these LATT-associated injuries.
