Summary of "Relationship between Nicotine Dependency and Occupational Injury in a Japanese Large-scale Manufacturing Enterprise: A Single-Center Study."

Although several studies have shown the association between smoking and occupational injury, the exact mechanism by which smoking contributes to occupational injury remains unclear. We conducted a five-year case-control study in a population of Japanese large-scale enterprise workers aimed to verify the hypothesis that nicotine dependency is positively associated with occupational injury.
