Work Injuries

Cases of work injury are required to have a Primary Accident Form and/or an Advice of Accident Form on which the doctor states briefly the nature of the injury, in terms easily understood by members of the Safety Department. Fitness or Unfitness to work must be certified for these injury cases on a Medical Treatment Slip on each attendance at the Clinic. All workers who have had Company accidents should be assessed within one (1) year of being declared fit or stabilized. The Chief Medical Officer is responsible for all assessments. However, he can delegate the task to any of the Medical Superintendents, as he thinks necessary.
