Denmark - Union publishes injury ranking and reports lack of inspection - January 31, 2016

The trade union journal Fagbladet 3F has for the first time produced a list of the companies where the most work-related injuries are sustained, and some of the country’s most prominent companies have the dubious honour of being included. Hilton Foods Danmark had the highest rate of injuries, the wind turbine producer LM Wind Power came second, and the cleaning company Kongsvang Rengøringsservice had the third-highest rate of workplace injuries. The country’s biggest slaughterhouse company Danish Crown was number nine on the list. According to the figures published, which are based on data collected for all reported workplace injuries between 2012 and 2014, there is a 5 percent chance of a Danish Crown employee being injured at work in any given year. The trade union magazine reported that companies with a working environment certificate, including some of the companies in the top ten, are not regularly inspected by Arbejdstilsynet, even if a lot of accidents are registered there.
