Report these two incidents to COID

 
Incident one: You must report any injury on duty that stops your employee from working for three days or more. 
 
These workplace accidents normally require a visit to the doctor. So ensure you employee gets a medical certificate from him. 
 
To report this kind of incident, you need to get a W.CL.2 form from a Compensation fund office, a local DoL office or from http://www.labour.gov.za/DOL/.
 
You must complete this form and report the accident to COID within seven days of the accident.
 
Incident two: Any of the occupational diseases we listed here, must be reported. These include a bad reaction to exposure to harmful substances such as chemicals or gasses. 
 
If your employee gets sick from his job, he must go to the doctor. If the doctor believes there are other effects because of your employee's job, he can claim for those too.
 
To report this, you must get a W.CL.1 and complete it. You can also get this form from a Compensation fund office, a local DoL office or from http://www.labour.gov.za/DOL/.
