Industrial injuries


The Industrial Injuries scheme provides no-fault, tax-free benefits for an employee who has suffered injury due to an accident at work, or who has contracted a prescribed industrial disease while working.

The scheme covers people who are employed by an employer, but not people who are self-employed.

Our Icon for pdf Industrial injuries factsheet (F15) (PDF, 356.4kb)  explains how to make a claim, and describes the various parts of the scheme and the benefits available under them.
