This book uses numerical simulations to take an integrated quantitative look at how the various institutions influencing workplace safety lead to the observed levels of illnesses and injuries among U.S. workers. The book pieces together the mosaic of interactions among workers, employers, state government, and the federal government that is numerically realistic in the sense of using economists' current knowledge of quantitative linkages. The objective has been to map out how the U.S. economic system determines employment patterns, wages, and workplace safety levels.
