Over a million accidents occur in Switzerland every year, most of them at home or generally during leisure time. So effective accident prevention doesn't just apply to the workplace. We'll help you make sure your employees know the key accident prevention rules.
Employee absences cause bottlenecks, scheduling problems and stress for other staff – they cost you a lot of money, and sometimes they could even cost you a customer.
Measures that have proven their effectiveness minimize the workplace risks of accidents, occupational diseases and work-related health hazards – and they optimize costs.
Businesses insured under the Federal Act on Accident Insurance (UVG) must comply with the Guideline on the Consultation of Occupational Physicians and Other Occupational Safety Specialists (ASA) issued by the Federal Coordination Commission for Occupational Safety (FCOS) . This guideline is based on the Federal Act on Accident Insurance and the Ordinance on the Prevention of Accidents and Occupational Diseases (OPA).

Employers have an obligation to prevent occupational accidents, whereas prevention of non-occupational accidents (NOAs) is voluntary. Many companies have successfully proven that it's also possible to exert a positive influence on their employees' behavior during their free time. This yields benefits for the company as well as the workforce.
Because accidents in free time are so frequent, it pays off for companies to commit to preventing NOAs.
