02 Aug 2.14. Recording of Occupational injuries (ACCIDENTS) by the Commissioner
Upon receipt of the Employer’s Report of an Occupational injury and a First Medical Report, the claim will be considered and if liability is accepted, notification will be addressed to the employer. The claim number allocated will appear on this notification.
If liability cannot at that stage be accepted an acknowledgement will be addressed to the employer, providing the claim number allocated.
N.B. EMPLOYERS ARE REQUESTED TO QUOTE THIS NUMBER IN ALL CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE FEDERATED EMPLOYER’S MUTUAL ASSURANCE COMPANY PROPRIETARY LIMITED (RF) RELATING TO OCCUPATIONAL INJURY.
This will greatly facilitate the filing of correspondence and relevant documents on the appropriate file and will expedite finalisation of the claim.
The basic information to identify a claim is as follows:
- The registered trade name and registration number as registered with FEM.
- The full names and surname of the injured employee (not nicknames).
- The employee’s identity number/personnel number and date of birth.
- The date the occupational injury was sustained.
The above mentioned information is captured on the computer and any discrepancies can result in duplication of claims, or that documents cannot be associated with an existing claim.
