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.
