Surveillance of the mortality per professional occupation is a classic tool for monitoring professional risks. From existing data sources, periodically and regularly, mortality statistics are produced, according to the cause of death (and their distribution per profession). Indicators thus obtained, and the follow up on their evolution in time, will show the professions and sectors which present particular risks (or at least enable us to come up with new risk hypothesis).
