Fatal industrial accidents are examined, excluding the mining industry and the public road traffic accidents. The basis of the statistic analysis is the Questionnaire of fatal accidents developed by the Trade Supervisory Center and the Federal Institute for Safety and Health (BAuA). The analysis of the fatal accidents in the Old Federal States are statistically evaluated at the BAuA since 1978. The Questionnaire is in offical use in all public departments of the occupational safety in all 16 Federal States during the gathering of the fatal accident's data.
