Office of Workers' Compensation Programs administers three major disability compensation programs which provide wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits to certain workers or their dependents who experience work-related injury or occupational disease.

Alliance of American Insurers The Alliance of American Insurers ranks among the nation's top property/casualty Insurance trade associations and is recognized as a leading and responsible voice on critical legislative and regulatory issues.

Articles and Reports

Transportation accidents leading cause of fatal work injuries, CONN-OSHA report ... Transportation-related incidents were the leading cause of fatal work injuries in five out of ten major industry divisions during the past five years according to a Department of Labor report released today. Overall, 38 percent of all Connecticut fatalities during the years 1992 to 1996 were the result of transportation incidents, mirroring a nationwide trend during that period, a Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) report prepared by the agency's CONN-OSHA division found.

NATIONAL CENSUS OF FATAL OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES, 1996 Largely as a result of reductions in job-related homicides and electrocutions, the number of fatal work injuries fell in 1996 to 6,112, the lowest level in the five-year history of the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor. The downward trend in the past two years reversed the increases reported in 1993 and 1994.

Just an alterantive.
Or, if you wish:
Hazardous manufacturing process/processes.
I personally prefer the first suggestion because is more generic.

Under: www.google.co.uk dangerous+ manufactoring I found the following example:

Select Committee on Foreign Affairs Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence



Memorandum submitted by ZENECA (China) Investment Company Limited

1998 and 1999 were milestone years in Britain's relationship with China, with two state visits of the British Prime Minister and of President Jiang Zemin. Business links have played, and will continue to play an important role in developing close relations between the two countries.

The British government and its embassy in China play vital roles in the development and strengthening of business ties and it is widely recognised in China that the British government has taken a sensible approach to China on many key issues. This approach has aided British companies in what has been a volatile period in China.

Zeneca Agrochemicals (Zeneca) is the crop protection and plant science business of AstraZeneca PLC, a UK-based international bioscience group. Zeneca's joint venture, the Zeneca Nantong Agrochemicals Company Ltd, a manufacturing plant in Jiangsu province, is the largest foreign investment of its kind in China. This joint venture is a good example of Sino-British co-operation in agriculture, a field that is vital for the future development of the Chinese economy. The British government and its organisation in China are as keen as the Chinese government to ensure that Zeneca Nantong is a complete success.

Zeneca appreciates the support of the British governments for raising our concerns to the Chinese government in the last few years. As a business, we continue to face two pressing issues.

First, the lack of import quota for active ingredient importation. This is despite the fact that the requirement was clearly documented in the feasibility study and the Joint Venture contract. Without sufficient import quota, the joint venture will be placed in severe operational and financial difficulties, and severe disruptions to Zeneca's overall businesses in China. We and our joint venture partners in Nantong are becoming increasingly anxious at the inability of the State Economic and Trade Commission (SETC) to supply the necessary approvals. In April this year, the UK Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Rt Hon Joyce Quin MP, raised our concerns on import quota with the Chinese Vice Minister of Agriculture, Mr Liu Jian. The British Ambassador to China, Sir Anthony Galsworthy has raised the quota issue to the State Council on Zeneca's behalf. Christopher Segar, Commercial Counsellor of the British Embassy has also been very supportive in representing our interests with SETC. The issue is yet to be resolved and we are assured of the continued assistance of the British Embassy for which we are very appreciative.

Second, the inadequate enforcement of uniform environmental standards to ensure old and "dangerous manufacturing technology" is phased out in China. Zeneca's pre-condition to investment to China was the Agreement with the former Ministry of Chemical Industry on environmental standards, this outlined the need to enforce the environmental standards set by the State Environmental Protection Association (SEPA) in China. The agreement was referenced in the joint venture contracts approved by Zeneca. The SETC and State Administration of Petrochemical and Chemical Industry (SAPCI) have both confirmed that they would honour the agreement. Despite this, SAPCI is still considering approvals for other processes, which, with inadequate investment on waste treatment facilities, can not meet the same environmental standards set in China.

In November 1999, Professor Geoff Randall, Adviser to the Cabinet Office on UK Government Environmental R&D Programme, wrote to the SAPCI and SEPA separately to raise concerns on the issues of environmental standards and to support the publication of the 6th Mandate which banned dated and dangerous manufacturing processes. Recently, the British Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, Rt Hon Stephen Byers MP also raised our concerns with the Chinese Vice Premier Wu Banguo, who initiated an investigation which should lead to a raised awareness of the 6th Mandate. So with the aid of the various British organisations we have been able to make considerable progress, but as always there is a long way to go. The Sino Britain Chemicals Working Group which is a forum created to raise industry issues on a formal level has also been a useful platform for progress.

The British Government organisations in China have good information on the fast changing political, legal and regulatory environment in China and all avenues should be used to continue to enhance the communications of this information. Much of the new commercial development however is based around the coastal cities and in particular Shanghai. So the political and regulatory developments are well tracked by the Embassy in Beijing but we believe the embassy could strengthen the commercial information flow in Shanghai and the fast developing cities. The Chinese legal framework is still not adequately developed and laws and regulations are open to local interpretation which creates a need to track information in the commercial centres. Any such enhancements would greatly benefit British Companies doing business in China by providing foresight and the opportunity to plan better, be more proactive and consequently compete more effectively with their global and local competitors in the Chinese market.

Although these issues will need continuous pressure to be resolved we are grateful for the willingness of the British Embassy in China to respond to our needs and to maintain the pressure for the upliftment of industry and environmental standards in this fast developing market.
