Accidents at work

In 2016, the fatality rate after a work accident was 1.8 per 100,000 employees in Belgium. To achieve the sustainable development goal by 2030, this figure must be reduced to zero. This objective will not be reached by continuing the trend since 2008. The fatality rate after a work accident is therefore developing unfavourably.
