Farmers accident incidence rate decreased by -2.2 per cent from the previous year 2018. In comparison of two five-year periods, farmers had 18,332 accidents at work resulting in a disability of at least four days in the 2010 to 2014 period, which is an average of 4,917 accidents per 100,000 farmers. In the 2015 to 2019 period, farmers had 14,544 accidents at work resulting in a disability of at least four days, which is an average of 4,782 accidents 100,000 farmers. The most recent occupational accident statistics contain data on the accidents at work of wage and salary earners and farmers in 2019. 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.
