Dear Sir or Madam

As president of the European Forum of the insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases and on behalf of the DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance), I warmly invite you to attend this year’s conference entitled “The future is now: Advancing accident insurance in Europe”. The annual conference will take place online. On the one hand this is due to the current situation, but at the same time makes the conference’s focus on digitalisation more tangible.

 

The online conference of the European Forum will take place on 16 and 17 June 2021.

 

On 15 June 2021, the working groups of the European Forum of the insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases will already meet for their sessions. The general meeting of the European Forum will follow on the second conference day (17 June 2021).

 

The topics we will be looking at in this year’s conference are “Agenda 2050: The future starts now”, “Digitalisation: Tackling the challenge” and “Occupational diseases: Developments and perspectives”. I selected these topics to let us take a joint look at the future of social insurance, particularly accident insurance, in Europe. It will be an opportunity for us to share our thoughts about what role the European Forum of the insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases should play and which topics the working groups of the European Forum should cover in future in order to help us overcome new challenges.

 

I would also like to warmly invite you to the social event following the first conference day (16 June 2021) – let’s see how we get the conversation flowing in virtual form!

 

The annual conference of the European Forum will be simultaneously interpreted. The languages offered are English, French, Russian, Spanish and German. Only during the planned group work and the General Assembly of the European Forum of the insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases will the working language be English.

 

You can find more information about this year’s conference of the European Forum on the website https://www.europeanforum2021.eu, which is continuously being updated.

 

We kindly ask that you register as soon as possible, and no later than 11 June 2021. By registering early you make it easier for us to plan and organise the online conference, so we would like to say a big thank you in advance for that.

 

For any questions about registration, please send an email to the agency 3c at service@3c3c.de , which is assisting us with the planning and implementation of the conference.

 

Berlin, 19 April 2021

 

Dr Edlyn Höller

04/01/2019 - A new report: Incidence and detection of occupational cancers in nine European countries

This new report entitled “Incidence and detection of occupational cancers in nine European countries" concern Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Sweden and Switzerland.

Cancer cases (reports and recognition) since 2005 have been relatively stable in Denmark, Belgium, France, Italy and Sweden, but have increased in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. For this last group, there are various reasons, such as the inclusion of skin cancer on the national list of ODs in Germany in 2015.

In every country except Germany, cancers due to asbestos dust accounted for the overwhelming majority of cancers recognized as an occupational disease in 2016. For example, mesotheliomas represented more than 30% of occupational cancers in Denmark, 50% in Austria and Italy, 65% in Belgium and around 90% in Sweden.

Comparing the number of cases recognized with the insured population, Germany and France top the list by far, with 15.1 and 11.39 per 100,000 insured respectively. The lowest ratio is posted in Sweden: 0.5. In Germany, cancers account for 32% of recognized occupational diseases. The study also reveals that the off-list recognition system is not the most suitable one for cancers.

The second part of the report discusses programmes designed to detect cancer cases at an early stage in order to improve the chances of healing, and schemes which help victims assert their rights to compensation for an occupational disease. These schemes could be the cross-checking of OD reports with the cancer register for mesotheliomas and cancers of the nasal cavities (Denmark), scouting for a possible work-related origin of lung cancers in a hospital environment (northern Italy), or else targeting and support for the potential victims of a bladder cancer by the OSH insurance organization (France).
