Occupational injury insurance
If you suffer an occupational injury, you must notify your manager and the health and safety representative at your workplace immediately. The manager is to report the injury. The health and safety representative is also to sign the report, to show that he or she is aware of it. The health and safety representative receives a copy of the report.
If you are injured in the workplace, or on your way to or from work, you can, in certain cases, receive compensation from Försäkringskassan.
As an employee, you can get compensation from the occupational injury insurance (PSA) via AFA Försäkring (Arbetsmarknadens Försäkrings AB).
