Leisure-time accident insurance protects you against risks relating to your human resources
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 while gardening or volunteering, for example, it is in your interests to get him or her treated quickly. If you have taken out leisure-time accident insurance for your staff, your employee can go directly to Pohjola Hospital or another one of our medical partners, whose top experts are committed to providing fast and high-quality treatment even in challenging cases. By minimising your employee’s recovery time, you are also reducing the length of their sick leave and therefore your own expenses.
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 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?
The scope and value of our leisure-time accident insurance policies can be tailored flexibly to your business’s needs. Our group accident insurance policies are valid anywhere in the world, and they therefore also cover medical treatment expenses incurred from injuries sustained abroad.
Components of our leisure-time accident insurance policies

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.
