Report occupational and commuting accidents to the agricultural accident insurance fund Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If an occupational accident has occurred in your business or facility, you must report it.

As an entrepreneur or as an institution, you are obliged to report occupational accidents or commuting accidents of employees to the statutory accident insurance. The obligation to report exists if the person concerned is likely to be unable to work for more than 3 days.

After your report, the agricultural accident insurance will check whether and to what extent insurance coverage exists. This is the case, for example, if the accident is related to the farm activity. In addition, the accident insurance automatically checks what benefits it must provide.

The injured person should consult a so-called transit doctor after the accident at work. These have special knowledge and experience in the field of accident medicine. In an emergency, it goes without saying that rapid medical assistance is important and the person concerned can consult any doctor.

You do not need to submit any additional documentation.
