Accidents at work

An employer is obliged to notify the Labour Inspection Authority as quickly as possible in the event of a fatal accident or accident involving serious personal injury. Examples of such serious injury could be: injuries to the head, skeletal injuries, internal injuries, loss of a body part, poisoning, frostbite, burns, corrosive injuries, loss of consciousness and injuries that require hospital treatment.

An employer is also obliged to notify the National Labour and Welfare Service (NAV) about injuries and illnesses that may entitle employees to occupational injury coverage from the National Insurance scheme. The person in question may also be entitled to occupational injury coverage pursuant to the Act relating to industrial injury insurance. Such claims shall be addressed to the insurance company with which the employer has taken out occupational injury insurance.
