Posti monitors the frequency of workplace accidents that lead to absences (LTA1: occupational accidents per million working hours). In 2017, the LTA1 figure was 46 (43) for Finland. For other operating countries including Russia, the figure was 13. This figure includes occupational accidents that occurred during working hours and led to an absence of at least one day (excluding Flexo and Posti Kotipalvelut). Taking commuting accidents into account, the total number of occupational accidents in 2017 was 1,905 (1,845).
A large proportion (54 percent) of the accidents lead to a short-term absence from work. In 2017, the number of accidents that led to more than a month-long absence from work was 105 (107).
At the end of the 2017 financial year, the number of personnel stood at approximately 20,000. In Finland, the company employed about 16,500 people at the end of the financial year, which makes it one of the country’s largest private-sector employers.
