Global estimates help to compare different countries and regions to each other to detect improvements in safety and safety work in 1998 the average estimated number of fatal occupational accidents was 350 000 and there were 264 million non-fatal accidents global estimates are needed to guide national policies and decision-making. In 1998 the average estimated number of fatal occupational accidents was 350 000 and there were 264 million non-fatal accidents global estimates are needed to guide national policies and decision. Global estimation of fatal work-related diseases this study of global estimates of fatal work-related global estimates of fatal occupational accidents epidem. The average estimated fatal occupational accident rate was 140/100 000 workers and the number of fatal accidents was 335 000 (takala, 1999) global estimates by ilo show that the occupational problems are bigger than earlier believed.
