The occupational safety and health panel is a survey that is targeted at the occupational safety and health personnel and focuses on current topics related to work life. It provides information about the phenomena, demands and trends visible at workplaces to support everyday work.
The purpose of the survey is to support the occupational safety and health personnel’s work: the results give tips on the matters on which attention should be paid at workplaces. The survey also provides information about the status of current topics related to work life at Finnish workplaces.
A short electronic survey is sent once a year to a sample extracted from the occupational safety and health personnel register. The survey focuses on occupational safety and health activities and topical matters related to workplace activities and well-being at work at each particular moment.
The occupational safety and health panel has been conducted since 2012. The panel is carried out in co-operation by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and the Centre for Occupational Safety.
