Comprehensive cover for leisure time and remote work with leisure-time accident insurance

Most accidents outside of work occur in familiar surroundings such as at home or when out jogging. Slips, falls and other leisure-time accidents are also a major contributor to absences from work. As an employer or an event coordinator, it is worth extending the insurance protection of your employees and volunteers to also cover any injuries they might sustain in their spare time.

If your employee is injured during remote work or while gardening or volunteering, for example, it is in your interests to ensure quick access to the treatment they need. The insurance gives your employees fast access to treatment at Pohjola Hospital or our medical partner for a quick recovery and return to daily life and work. By minimising your employee’s recovery time, you are also reducing the length of their sick leave and therefore your own expenses.

By giving your staff fast access to efficient treatment and rehabilitation after a leisure-time accident, they can return to work sooner.

Multi-purpose insurance

Group accident insurance is a form of leisure-time accident insurance that lends itself to many different purposes and can be tailored to your needs.

You can take out insurance for your entire staff, a specific group or even a single individual and cover them only outside of work or on a full-time basis, in which case they are protected by your policy 24/7. 

It is also an excellent way to provide additional protection for employees who work remotely. In remote work, occupational accident and occupational disease insurance only covers activities immediately related to the work. You can expand your employees’ insurance cover in remote work with voluntary insurance. 

In addition to your staff, you can take out insurance for your visitors, volunteer workers or groups going camping or on an excursion or taking part in recreational activities. You can insure one or more individuals on a continuous basis, for a fixed period of time or for the duration of a specific event. Our group accident insurance is also suitable for schools, educational institutions and nurseries.

What does leisure-time accident insurance cover?

Insurance covers and amounts can be chosen flexibly, depending on your company's needs. The following expenses are covered by different covers included in leisure-time accident insurance.

  • Medical treatment expenses for injuries are covered by Medical Treatment Cover
  • Loss of earnings for periods of disability is covered by Daily Allowance Cover
  • Permanent disability caused by an injury is compensated under Disability Cover
  • In the event of accidental death, the insured person’s next of kin receive a lump-sum compensation.

Our group accident insurance policies are valid anywhere in the world, and they therefore also cover medical treatment expenses incurred from injuries sustained abroad.

The insurance covers injuries sustained during fitness training. However, certain sports are excluded from the scope of the cover under the terms and conditions. As a rule, the insurance does not cover injuries sustained from competitive sports or training or certain high-risk activities. The policies can be extended to also cover high-risk sports. You can find out more about compensation in our group accident insurance product guide and terms and conditions.

For a more comprehensive supplement for your employees’ leisure-time cover, select the workers' compensation insurance with supplement for leisure-time.
