Methods: The study population was drawn from the Danish version of the European Labour Force Survey from 1999-2013. The current study was based on 150 438 participants (53{\%} men and 47{\%} women). Data on accidental injuries were obtained at individual level from national health registers. We included all 20-59-year-old employees working ≥32 hours a week at the time of the interview.

Age, sex and SES were included as two-way interactions. Results: We observed 23 495 cases of accidental injuries based on 273 700 person years at risk.
