Does my employer need to pay for my insurance if I am dong manual labor?

I was hired by a company that requires me to do manual labor, however I am not insured. Accidents happen in all places and my job makes me susceptible to this accidents and I am afraid that I would not be compensated if in case such a thing happens. Isn't my employer required to provide insurance for work injury? If they are required, what would be their penalty for not giving me one?

    This act is unacceptable because your employer is required to buy work injury compensation insurance for all employees doing manual work, regardless of salary level.and all employees doing non-manual work, earning $1,600 or less a month. They must have insurance for both local and foreign employees. Failure to provide adequate insurance is an offence carrying a fine of up to $10,000 or jail of up to 12 months, or both.
