INAIL, Italy’s National Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work, is a non-profit public body that manages compulsory insurance against accidents at work and occupational diseases. Founded in 1933, it promotes a culture of prevention in order to reduce the number of accidents and incidence of occupational diseases. In addition to insuring workers who carry out high risk activities, it provides economic and health benefits to reduce and prevent accidents in the workplace.
Around 650,000 accidents at work are reported every year in Italy. With about 10,000 employees distributed throughout the country, INAIL manages a portfolio of about 3.2 million companies, protecting workers and carrying out scientific research aimed at improving safety at work.
