Occupational accident

Occupational accident means a sudden, unpredictable event which is caused by an external factor and which takes place at work, in work-related conditions or on the way to work. Aalto University’s employees are insured against occupational accidents, and the insurance company is IF.

Instructions for the event of an occupational accident

  • If the injury requires medical attention, the employee, depending on the type and severity of the injury, seeks appropriate care using the emergency services or the on-call physician’s reception of a health centre or another medical facility. The most important thing is that the injury is treated without unnecessary delays.
  • The Internal Accident Report must be filled within a week of the incident.
  • Report your period of absence in the Workday system.
  • For absences of more than three days you also need a medical certificate. Please send it to: [email protected]
  • Deliver the occupational accident-related invoices to [email protected]

The compensation system for occupational accidents and diseases is based on the Workers’ Compensation Act (Työtapaturma- ja ammattitautilaki 459/2015).
