Summary/Abstract: Increased awareness of victims in the range of claiming and the growing value of those claims in the area of bodily injuries imply an increased risk of employer's liability for work-related accidents. This justifies the need for a more detailed analysis of the category of risk in the risk management process. In the present study, the authors analyse trends regarding the number of accidents in Poland and other countries. Against this background, data on accidents at work in Poland are classified using selected criteria.
