EUROGIP publishes a report entitled “Reporting of occupational diseases: issues and good practices in five European countries”. These countries – Germany, Denmark, Spain, France and Italy – were chosen because they are representative of diverse but mature insurance models and four of them (except Germany) show an interest in the issue of under-reporting of occupational diseases.
The study is organized around these issues:
- an overview on reporting occupational diseases procedures
- comparative statistics (2011) concerning main reported and recognized occupational diseases (MSDs, hypoacusia, dermatosis, cancers)
- a focus on under-reporting of occupational diseases with an assessment each country makes of the shortcomings of its system and the solutions experimented successfully to correct them.
