If you are injured
If you suffer an injury at work, you must immediately inform your line manager and the health and safety representative in your workplace. Your manager is to report the injury. The health and safety representative must also sign the report to show that he or she has been informed. The health and safety representative receives a copy of the report.
If you injure yourself in the workplace or on the way to or from work, you can receive compensation from Försäkringskassan in certain cases. You can also receive compensation from the occupational injury insurance policy (PSA) through AFA Insurance.
