Accident Frequency

The number of times an accident occurs over a period of time. Accident frequency depends on the type of work an individual or company does, and the dangers inherent to certain actions. Accident frequency helps an insurance company determine the premium for accident insurance. Accident frequency in the workplace is likely to be higher if a company does not have or does not enforce safety standards.
