In 2012, wage and salary earners had a total of 22,296 commuting accidents for which insurance companies paid compensation. Disability of at least four days resulted from 9,532 of these accidents. Commuting accidents differ from accidents at work in that they occur more often to women than men. The victim in more than two out of three (67.7%) of all commuting accidents was a woman. In 2000 to 2011, the proportion was nearly the same, at roughly 66 per cent. The most recent occupational accident statistics contain data on the accidents at work of wage and salary earners and own-account workers in agriculture in 2012. The statistics also contain data on the accidents at work that occurred to other self-employed persons, and on wage and salary earners commuting accidents.

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.
