Farmers risk of accidents has fallen over the past ten years
15 Jun 2017
Risk of accidents at work among own-account workers in agriculture, i.e. farmers, has fallen by six per cent from 2006 to 2015. These data derive from Statistics Finland's occupational accidents statistics, in which two five-year periods were compared with each other. In the 2006 to 2010 period, farmers had 22,174 accidents at work, which is an average of 5,229 accidents per 100,000 farmers per year. In the 2011 to 2015 period, a total of 17,575 accidents at work occurred, which converts to an annual average of 4,895 accidents per 100,000 farmers. The most recent occupational accident statistics contain data on the accidents at work of farmers in 2015.

Description: The statistics on occupational accidents contain annual data on the occupational accidents that have occurred to wage and salary earners and own-account workers in agriculture. The statistics also contain data on occupational accidents that have occurred to other self-employed persons and the commuting accidents that have occurred to wage and salary earners. The data for the occupational accident statistics are created as a by-product from insurance activity, so that all the accidents at work for which insurance institutions have paid compensations are recorded in the statistics. The cut-off point is the last day of the year following the statistical reference year. The statistics examine primarily the occupational accidents that have resulted in a disability of at least four days. This delimitation corresponds to the one used in Eurostat statistics on accidents at work. Earlier Statistics Finland statistics on occupational accidents have applied the limit of disability of at least three days.
