Introduction. Occupational diseases in Ukraine is an important medical, social and economic problem. In recent years there has been a steady decline in the level of occupational diseases, pointing, however, to the lack of detection. New socio-economic relations in the country, especially against the background of the health reform, and Ukraine's desire to implementation of modern European standards on medical care of the population, dictate the need to search for modern ways of obtaining the objective information on the state of occupational morbidity of workers.

Purpose of the study – scientific substantiation and creation of the information system on accounting and analysis of occupational pathology, using the developed methodology on the basis of the concept of the State Register of persons who have been established an occupational disease.

Materials and methods of the investigation. Generalization and analysis of scientific publications, normative legal acts, statistical paper and electronic forms of documents, related to accounting and registration of occupational diseases.

Results. The analysis of materials concerning the implementation of the state policy in the field of occupational hygiene on creation of the State Register of persons diagnosed with occupational disease (poisoning) has been analyzed.

Conclusions. 1. The quality of preparation of the statistical data on health indicators in workers needs to be improved. First of all, this is due to the lack of the sectoral electronic information resource in Ukraine – a modern system of accounting, registration and analysis of occupational diseases – State Register. 2. Within the framework of the Concept on creation of the State Register of Occupational Diseases, the structure and principles of the functioning of the State Register of Individuals who were diagnosed with occupational disease were grounded, and there were examined materials for developing the regulatory bases for the Register of occupational diseases and principles for building a task for the software of the Register as well as principles for building and the content of the technical task for the software of an automated workplace (AWP) of a doctoroccupational pathologist and a statistician.3. The formation of the State Register on the basis of innovative information and communication technologies is especially important in the period of reforming the health care system, which will allow obtaining objective data on health indicators of employees and adopt them on the bases of appropriate management decisions with due account of the need in legislative regulation, appropriate software and hardware for the Register and training specialists in the field of medical informatics. 4. Realization of this task is impossible without approval of the relevant legal documents. First of all, this concerns the Regulations on the establishment and operation of the State Register of Ukraine for persons who have diagnosed occupational diseases, the Procedure on recording and accounting incidences, acute and chronic occupational diseases and accidents at work, the Procedure on conducting medical examinations of selected categories of employees, Regulation on occupational service of Ukraine, etc.
