German term or phrase: Hauptverband der gewerblichen Berufsgenossenschaften (HVBG)
"So weist die Unfallstatistik des Hauptverbandes der gewerblichen Berufsgenossenschaften (HVBG) im Zeitraum von 1984 bis 1994 jährlich zwischen 14 000 und 20 000 meldepflichtige Unfälle mit Personenschäden aus."

Name of a major German organisation concerned with occupational safety and health. Normally, I have little trouble finding an English translation for these sorts of organisations, but on this occasion, no one seems to have bothered with an English name yet. There probably is a translation somewhere, but try as I might, I just can't find it.

Does anyone here know what this organisation would be called in English? TIA for your help.
