Audit Audit of the organisation and use of funds for occupational safety - Federal Coordination Commission for Occupational Safety

Audit number: 15323

The Federal Coordination Commission for Occupational Safety (FCOS) is tasked with outlining the implementation areas and monitoring the uniform application of the provisions on preventing accidents and occupational diseases. It has close to CHF 110 million at its disposal annually to finance its activities and those of the different implementing bodies. This sum is gathered from each insurer, which contributes an additional premium collected from accident insurance premiums. In its audit, the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) highlighted the significant entanglement between the FCOS and SUVA, which threatens the practical and obvious independence of the Commission.
