Who handle statistics materials?

At the Finnish Workers’ Compensation Center (TVK), the receiving of statistics materials and the maintaining of registers are the responsibility of the Actuary and Statistics Unit, who also compile the annual risk study published by the TVK. Occupational safety statistics are compiled by Research and Analysis Services together with the Actuary and Statistics Unit.

For comprehensive national statistics, data are also needed on agricultural entrepreneurs in addition to TVK data. This is achieved by having the TVK and MELA data on occupational accidents and on occupational illnesses combined by Statistics Finland and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, respectively. The authorisation for disclosing these data is provided for in the Acts concerning Statistics Finland, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, MELA and the TVK.

Statistics Finland and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health also forward the necessary information to the European Commission and the ILO.
