Alert and sentinel systems: SUVA, Switzerland

Keywords:Alert and sentinel systems

Part of a series of five in-depth studies of Alert and Sentinel approaches for detecting, monitoring and preventing new work-related diseases (WRDs), this article focuses on the SUVA system in Switzerland.

As a compensation-based system with an ‘open list’ approach, it also allows the reporting of work-related diseases outside the prescribed list of occupational diseases.

Find out how SUVA enables the alert of new and emerging WRDs. Read more about the strengths of the system, including the standardisation of the reporting process,the communication between companies, physicians and SUVA and the strong link to workplace prevention.
