Although taking measures and improvements in recording accidents diminished incidence of fatal accidents, our country is still very far from the incidences seen in developed countries.

Most of fatal accidents were seen among workers who were not talented. Construction sites, opencast quarry, opencast mine, industrial sites were the most hazardous places having risk of accidents. Production, manufacturing, processing, storing excavation, construction, repair, demolition are the second hazardous works. Women had occupational accidents in tertiary activity area, office, amusement area,and health institutions in 2015 most. When work experience is regarded, most occupational accidents were seen among workers having a work experience of 1 month-1 year in 2014 and 2015.
