The circumstances of all work-related fatalities occurring in Australia over a three year period were analysed to determine how they differed between occupational groups. Correspondence analysis was used to examine the relationship between the sequence of events immediately preceding the accident, the involvement of unsafe work practices and type of work being performed. There were clear differences in the causes of deaths at work between occupational groups which provide information about the most likely targets for accident prevention.
