  1. aall monetary values are in 2015 Euros, blower and higher incidence of fatal and non-fatal work diseases (adjustment for underreporting), clower and higher incidence of non-fatal work injuries with more than 3 workdays lost (adjustment for underreporting), dadd healthcare costs of non-fatal work injuries with no workday lost, elower and higher monetary values of a quality-adjusted life years, flower and higher range of healthcare costs for injuries and diseases, glower and higher range for earnings losses of cases with permanent disability, hlower and higher range for informal caregiving time for work diseases with permanent disability, ilower and higher range for informal caregiving time for work injuries with permanent disability, jlower bound includes compensated case and higher bound includes compensated case plus specific types of diseases that estimated through attributable fractions approach (same as the baseline)
