1 Health and Safety at Work statistics Eurostat Sector Social Dialogue Committee Extractive Industries 6 September 2013 Bart De Norre, Eurostat

2 Eurostat Contents European Statistics on Accidents at Work (ESAW) Labour Force Survey ad-hoc modules European Occupational Diseases Statistics (EODS) Data Links

3 Eurostat Data collections in HSW From administrative sources: European Statistics on Accidents at Work (ESAW) 1993, gentlemen's agreement, Commission regulation with some derogations European Occupational Diseases Statistics (EODS) 2002, gentlemen's agreement, halted, simplification and revision needed From surveys: Labour Force Survey ad hoc module (LFS AHM) on accidents at work and other work-related health problems (covers also exposure to risk factors) 1997, 2013 Commission regulation, ESS agreement

4 Eurostat ESAW Commission Regulation 349/2011 First data for the reference year 2011 (June 2013) All sectors of economic activity both public and private should be covered. Focus on employees Gradual implementation Some sectors (Mining, Fishing, Public administration, Health, Education) not yet well covered by all countries. => 2015 Some variables not yet collected => 2015 No later than 18 months, micro data and metadata, quality report Commission decision on derogations some countries got derogations till 2014 (DE: "days lost" in 2016, UK in 2015) Methodology (concepts, variables, definitions, classifications)

5 Eurostat ESAW Accident at work: discrete occurrence in the course of work which leads to physical or mental harm (whilst engaged in an occupational activity or during the time spent at work) Serious: more than 3 days absence from work Fatal: leading to the death of the victim within one year Variables: injured person: Employment status, occupation, sex, age, nationality injury: Type of injury, part of the body injured, days lost (severity) enterprise: Economic activity, size of the enterprise Date, time and geographical location of the accident Causes and circumstances: Characteristics of the workplace and the sequence of events characterising the causes and circumstances of the accident

6 Eurostat ESAW injured person Employment status (employees, self-employed, …) Occupation (ISCO08 / ISCO88) sex, age, nationality (optional) Injury (broadly in accordance with ICD10, ILO resolution) Type of injury part of the body injured days lost (severity) Enterprise Economic activity (NACE REV2 / NACE Rev 1) size of the enterprise (optional) Date, time (optional) and geographical location of the accident

7 Eurostat ESAW Variables on causes and circumstances: At least 3 out of 9 3 sequences: Before the accident, the person is carrying out a specific physical activity at a particular location (working environment) During the accident, an abnormal, unexpected and undesired event (deviation from the normal) causes an accident As a result, the injury occurs (contact – mode injury, part of body injured) that causes injury-related absence (days lost) or death (severity). Each of the three levels can be linked with Material Agent. Mostly delivered: Working environment, Deviation, Contact-Mode of injury

8 Eurostat ESAW – quality Completion of all variables (unknown percentages) Is the insurance system covering all workers? Are all accidents reported? Insurance based systems Accidents are notified to a specific Insurer (public and/or private) Strong reporting incentive (economic interest for the worker) BE, DE, EL, ES, FR, IT, LU, AT, PT, FI and CH Universal social security systems Legal obligation to report to relevant authority (Labour Inspection) Refunding by the universal social security (less economic incentive) BG, CZ, DK, EE, IE, CY, LV, LT, HU, MT, NL, PL, RO, SI, SK, SE, UK, NO

9 Eurostat Under-reporting For non-fatal accidents in countries with a non-insurance based data collection. Assessment of reporting levels by comparing the administrative declaration numbers and national population survey data on people reporting accidents at work or other sources such as hospital records. Correction in ESAW numbers for under-reporting for these countries (typically multiplied by about 2, but depending on the sector). For some Member States that joined the EU after 2004, the reporting levels are not yet systematically known.

10 Eurostat Ad-hoc modules of the Labour Force Survey Household survey, modules in 1999, 2007 and next in 2013 Accidents at work (all, including no day off or 1-3 days, self-reported): number, type and time out of work (most recent) for workers not well covered by ESAW (e.g. self-employed) and < 4 days absence Other work-related health problems (WRHP, self-reported): number, type, time out of work and limitations in normal day-to-day activities (most serious) Exposure to factors adversely affecting health (mental and physical)

11 Eurostat Types of WRHP Bone, joint or muscle problem which mainly affects neck, shoulders, arms or hands Bone, joint or muscle problem which mainly affects hips, knees, legs or feet Bone, joint or muscle problem which mainly affects back Breathing or lung problem Skin problem Hearing problem Stress, depression or anxiety Headache and/or eyestrain Heart disease or attack, or other problems in the circulatory system Infectious disease (virus, bacteria or other type of infection) Stomach, liver, kidney or digestive problem Other types of health problem

12 Eurostat Exposure to risk factors Physical health risk factors difficult work postures or work movements handling of heavy loads noise or strong vibration chemicals, dust, fumes, smoke or gases activities involving strong visual concentration risk of accidents Mental well-being risk factors severe time pressure or overload of work violence or threat of violence harassment or bullying always in a degree of frequency and intensity that this is perceived as a risk or has led to physical health problems

13 Eurostat EODS recognised cases, often liable for compensation Tip of an iceberg & Time-lag effect Commission Recommendation (2003/670/EC) on the European schedule of occupational diseases Big differences between national recognition systems in terms of scientific criteria, legal basis, administrative practice, type of compensation. From 2001 onwards, progressively implemented by MS Basic information on victim + enterprise (at time exposure) Diagnosis (list of diseases based on ICD10) Severity (but very difficult) Exposure and « use categories » Incident new cases and deaths, but very difficult
