Women report the most coronary work-related injuries


Almost 8000 have reported occupational injuries related to corona, according to figures from Arbejdsmarkedets Erhvervssikring.

Women account for the majority of reviews.

“There are almost three times as many women as men who report covid-19 as a work injury. This is probably due to the fact that a large part of the occupational exposure to covid-19 infection takes place in industries where there are many women employed, «says Lisbet Dyrberg, customer center director at Arbejdsmarkedets Erhvervssikring.

While almost 6,000 women have reported occupational injuries, men account for 2,000 of the reports.

Precisely employees in the social and health sector are among the particularly vulnerable when it comes to corona-related work-related injuries.

4700 of the reviews come from employees from here.

»Nurses come into close contact with the infected, and therefore I am especially pleased that it has been recognized as an occupational injury, as there is a risk of becoming ill with late effects, and therefore there should be an opportunity to receive compensation. , «Says Anni Pilgaard, who is deputy chairman of the Danish Nurses’ Council.

But many fail to report coronary work-related injuries, says the Association of Young Doctors, which represents 14,000 hospital doctors.

The organization has researched the topic among their members. According to Yngre Læger, 46 percent fail to report it, and this can lead to them missing out on it being recognized as an occupational injury.

“We would like to encourage you to report it. It is a disease that we do not know the side effects and long-term effects of, and therefore it is important that you report it as an occupational injury, “says Helga Schultz, who is chairman of Yngre Læger.
