Reliable Occupational Accident Registration – Indicator for Prevention

 

The aim of the pilot project (Realocc Accidents -project) was to provide sufficient background information on existing situation regarding occupational accidents at workplaces. The results of the pilot will enable policy makers and stakeholders of occupational safety and health to take target-oriented measures for a better prevention of workplace accidents.

In the pilot project, Norway, Sweden and Latvia have conducted evaluation studies to estimate the amount of underreporting. The Summary of the survey has been compiled by Anne Marie Lund Eikrem and Dr. Yogindra Samant from Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority.

The project has been supported by seed money facility of EU Stratety for the Baltic Sea Region.
