From the point of view of workplace safety, it is important to know whether having a temporary job has an effect on the severity of workplace accidents. Using Italian data, we present an empirical analysis on the severity of workplace accidents by type of contract. We find that workers with a temporary contract, if subject to a workplace accident, were more likely to be confronted with severe injuries than permanent workers.
