Abstract

Purpose
This study aimed to analyze industrial accident compensation insurance coverage and industrial accidents among concrete mixer truck drivers.
Methods
Original data on industrial accidents from 2012 to 2017 were analyzed through descriptive statistics.
Results
Industrial accident compensation insurance coverage was 44.6% in 2017. Most concrete mixer truck drivers were affiliated with small businesses. A total of 61 industrial accidents occurred in 2012, 65 in 2014, and 80 in 2017. The major types of industrial accident were falls, slips, and crushes.
Conclusion
Because concrete mixer truck drivers are at high risk for industrial accidents, industrial accident compensation insurance coverage and industrial accident prevention should be strongly enforced.
