This project will carry out a detailed analysis on the relationship between health problems and risk of accidental injury at work. Using the General Practice Research Database, the study will explore the association of accidental injury with illness and prescribed medication. If found the associations will be characterised and risks assessed in terms of different time windows of exposure prior to injury. Any attributable proportion of injuries will also be assessed.
