Abstract: 
This paper evaluates the impact of resource intensity on occupational health in Kazakhstan, exploiting official statistical data on injury rates, mining production and employment, income and inequality measurements across 16 regions for period from 2001 to 2014. The injury and the fatality rates in the panel are estimated using fixed effects and random effects model respectively. The results indicate positive correlation between engagement in the resource sector and the injury rate. The paper also finds other significant determinants of occupational accident rates in Kazakhstan - inequality, income, and unemployment.
