What are considered as work related accidents?
I am about to open a new business and I need to get insurances for my future employees. A lot of the incomming employees would be placed on the production field where accidents are prone to happen. As an employer, I want to know what are considered as work related injuries just in case an employee gets injured and reports an accident.
Work-related accidents are unintended event that occurs in the course of work that leads to an injury or condition. It can also be a Dangerous Occurrence, an Occupational Disease, traffic accidents that happen at the workplace or in the course of work, accidents that are incidental to or from work or conditions of a medical nature, such as heart attacks or strokes, that may be triggered by work.
