What does the company have to do?
- The company must notify us of the work-related injury and give the injured person the referral note
- The referral note is a document that requests medical care for the injured worker in our healthcare centres. The worker must submit it duly completed, with both the worker's and the company's details, as well as information about the accident
- If the worker is not given medical leave and can return to work, s/he must be included in the "list of work-related injuries without medical leave”

- In the event of an accident that is serious, very serious, a death or an accident that has affected more than 4 workers, the company not only has to fill out the work-related injury report, but also has to notify the labour authority of the province where the accident happened about the accident. Accidents while travelling to or from work are exempt from this obligation. The labour authority of the province must be notified through the system via Delt@, telegram, fax or another similar method, within 24 hours
