  • Description:

    The standardised incidence rate for a country is calculated by multiplying the incidence rate for each economic sector with the ratio between the sector-specific and the total EU reference population (employed persons), and then summing up the weighted incidence rates. The standardised incidence rate assumes that the economic sectors in each country have the same relative size in terms of reference populations as the sectors at EU level. This enables a direct comparison of incidence rates between countries without being influenced by larger high or low risk sectors. The (non-standardised) incidence rate is calculated, for each country and economic sector, as the number of accidents at work (with 4 calendar days of absence from work or more) divided by the number of employed persons working in the relevant country and economic sector A, C, D, …N according to the NACE classification, revision 2, and multiplied by 100,000. An accident at work is 'a discrete occurrence in the course of work which leads to physical or mental harm'. This includes all accidents in the course of work, whether they happen inside or outside the premises of the employer, in public places or during transport and at home (such as during teleworking). It also includes cases of acute poisoning and wilful acts of other persons.
