Concepts used when gathering health and safety information, according to the legislation in force and to the Resolution on Occupational Injuries, of the XVI International Conference of Labour Statisticians.

> Accident at work - An accident at work is defined as "a discrete occurrence in the course of work which leads to physical or mental harm" that imply an absence of more than one day from work. This includes cases of acute poisoning and willful acts of other persons, as well as accidents occurring during work but off the company's premises, even those caused by a third party that leads. 

> Commuting accident - A commuting accident is defined as an accident which occurs during the normal journey between the home, the place of work and the usual place where meals are taken. As for accidents at work, all cases of commuting accidents leading to an absence of more than one calendar day from work or the death of the victim are covered. Nevertheless, data on commuting accidents is not included in data on accidents at work. They are always presented separately.

> Worked Hours - Total of effectively hours worked in normal periods plus total of hours considered as overtime work in the reference period. It also includes the time spent with training actions and occupational health services. 

> Time lost due to occupational injuries (days lost) - Time lost due to occupational injuries is measured in terms of the number of calendar days (civil days) during which the injured person is temporarily incapacitated, based on the information available at the time the statistics are compiled. The time lost should be measured inclusively from the day after the day of the accident, to the day prior to the day of return to work. Temporary absences from work of less than one day for medical treatment should not be included in time lost. 

> Frequency Rate (Fr) - Number of accidents at work, fatal and non fatal, per million of worked hours in the reference period. 

> Severity Rate (Sr) - Number of non working days due to accidents at work (non fatal), per million of worked hours in the reference period. 

> Incidence Rate (Ir) - Number of accidents at work, fatal and non fatal, per thousand workers in the reference period.
