The importance of severity and the diversity of the consequences of work-related accidents is well established. These consequences are harmful for the victim, his family, his employer and the national economy. The significance of these consequences is related to the degree of incapacity suffered by the victim. In this work we have analyzed the list of victims who have been reported to have suffered a work accident in the geographical area of the city of Kenitra located in northwestern Morocco. The goal is to help determine the frequency of types and degrees of disability experienced by victims. The results show that the frequency of these types of accidents is one of the highest in the world and far exceeds those noted in the MENA region. Mortality, total disability and permanent partial disability rates are very high in three activity areas: industry, construction and service companies. Even if these three sectors are known by their important participation in the national economy, they have very negative consequences on the population of employees, their family, their company.... The causes of these accidents are not sufficiently known because the conditions of these accidents are not sufficiently detailed in the archives concerned.
