Reporting of occupational diseases: issues and good practices in five European countries

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Reporting of occupational diseases: issues and good practices in five European countries

 

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.
