Abstract

In this article, Bayesian classification is employed in identifying the patterns of the seasonal variation in constructionrelated accidents. Accident reports during the period 2000 to 2009 are extracted from case reports of the Northern Region Inspection Office of the Council of Labor Affairs of Taiwan. The results show that there are some patterns of occupational fatalities in the construction industry. During summer, the risk of fall accidents among workers of age 21-40 and 41-60 is very high, and better protection against electric shocks should be used. During winter, the increased risk of fall-related incidents due to unpredictable wet weather conditions should be managed. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
