Occupational injury insurance

If you are injured in the workplace, or on your way to or from work, you may be entitled to compensation. Here you can read more about occupational injury insurance.

If you suffer an occupational injury, you – together with your manager and health and safety representative – must notify Försäkringskassan.

How to report occupational injuries and incidents

Compensation for occupational injuries

Report any costs associated with the occupational injury to Försäkringskassan and the AFA Försäkring insurance company that investigates the matter and can provide compensation for loss of income, cost of medication, pain and suffering or other injuries and ailments. 

Remember to save any receipts for expenses incurred in connection with the event.
