Abstract

This paper presents the results of research aimed at constructing a linear mathematical model that determines the influence of selected factors characterising construction production on the accident rate in the construction industry. A number of linear multi-factor mathematical models were developed, which were then compared with each other, and those that best described the analysed phenomena were selected.
