Unintentional and intentional injuries are a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the harsh environment of the North. Both occupational and non-occupational injuries are of special importance in this region, and both are focus areas for this Working Group. Injury classification and surveillance, the role of alcohol and drug abuse, injury risks related to subsistence and work-related activities, and prevention programs are all areas to be addressed by this Working Group.
