  1. N: unweighted number of injuries due to non-fatal accidents; CR: crude rate per 100 person years; ASR: age-standardised rate: weighted age-standardised incidence rate per 100 person years; SE: standard errors of the age-standardised incidence rates calculated using the binomial distribution [12]. Educational status based on the CASMIN educational classification [11].
  2. *Age range restricted to 18–69 years because only 19 people aged 70+ years were still employed.
