Occupational safety and health inspections in Finland years 2017-2020

The data published as a result of a joint project between the occupational safety and health authority and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health is the first open data publication in the field of occupational safety and health enforcement. The data includes inspections between 2017-2020 and consists of nearly 90,000 workplace inspections. There are nearly 38,000 inspected employers and more than 63,000 workplaces.

Publication of the data in the Work-Life Knowledge service is part of the open data publication plan occupational safety and health enforcement. Open data is based on the principles of transparency of governance, sharing of data, interoperability and shared use. These principles were approved in the Government decision-in-principle on improving the accessibility and reuse of public sector digital data (3 March 2011).

What the indicators describe

In addition to enabling comparison of the number of occupational safety and health inspections per sector and subject matter, the indicators provide information on the lawfulness of the inspected matters. If the inspected matter is not lawful in the workplace, the health inspector will impose an obligation. The analysis page provides more information about the different obligations.
