The European Forum of the insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases was created in 1992 “as an informal group, based on a community of work and interests, bringing together national organizations of insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases”.

The objective was and remains:

  • to promote and sustain the concept of insurance against the occupational injuries and ensure that it is a separate branch in the national social security systems;
  • to pursue the convergence process of insurance systems against occupational injuries in Europe.

As of September 2015, the European Forum brings together 24 national organizations of Insurance from 21 European countries.

In addition to an annual conference organized by the Forum Presidency, a newsletter is published: Forum news. The number 42 has just been published (in English).
