In a context of modernization and improvement of its communications, the Accident Insurance Organization (AAA) has published its first annual report, which gives an overall view of its functioning, roles and activities, and key data and financial results for 2017.

The AAA gives a reminder that in 2001 it implemented a major reform to compensate the insured more fairly with benefits similar to those of the common law, while maintaining its financial equilibrium. A retrospective analysis shows that this goal has now been achieved. By comparison with 2016, spending has increased only slightly (2.8%). In contrast, revenues coming from contributions payable by employers and non-salaried insured posted more pronounced growth (7%). The single contribution rate for 2016 of 1% of the payroll was thus able to be maintained, and is at an historically low level.

As regards the general Social Security regime (which covers everyone working in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg), 15,780 occupational injuries, 3,638 travel injuries and 99 occupational diseases were recognized in 2017. The AAA receives 100 reported cases every day on average, bearing in mind that Luxembourg has 30,665 companies and 406,129 worker-units.

The number of injuries recognized remained stable, despite the significant increase in the labour force in recent years. However, it must be admitted that although the injury frequency rate is at an all-time low, the number of work-related deaths is still high (21).
