Its B. This can be best weakened by an option that really talks about what accidents are considered to be job related. Option (B) says that the Company P considered more types of accidents to be job-related than did company O. As a result, fewer accidents were recorded by Company A in comparison with Company B.

A) More time out of work means less chances of meeting with job related accident. So, may be correct. Put it aside.
B) As there is a difference in the no.of types of accidents it may be true. This has more chances of being correct than A as it discusses with the accidents.
C) Sick --> Out of scope. The argument is about accidents.
D) concentrating only on company O. No reference to P.
E) Out of scope.

Finally, B seems a better option than A.

+B. If more types of accidents in company P than those in company O are considered job-related, then the conclusion that the employees of company O are less likely to have job-related accidents falls apart.
