Compensation for Occupational Injuries And Diseases
Being compensated for a work-related injury or illness contracted at work will go a long way in ensuring your employees and their family are taken care of financially.
In the last 12 years, we have been ensuring that any employee disabled employment is entitled to medical benefits, pensions and continuing income in the event of death Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA) 130 of 1993.
COIDA, 130 of 1993, as amended regulates how and when employees who have been injured at work or who have contracted an illness or disease in the workplace are compensated and clearly sets out the legal requirements for tariffs, compensation and the limitations for workers' claims. RMA has the mandate to administer COID for Class IV (Mining) and Class XIII (Iron, Steel and Metals) only.
COIDA pays for medical assessment and diagnosis, identification of the illness and compensation. Likewise, when an employee dies from workplace accidents or an occupational disease, the deceased employee's dependents qualify for benefits.
We’ve paid over R7 million annually on special allowances and extension pensions.
Besides COIDA requirements, we have also built other technologies to help provide better long-term care for critically injured beneficiaries such as our mobile prosthetic clinic, funeral and top-up insurance plans to add value to our members' quality of life. Our leading IT systems can manage both medical, temporary and pension claims easily and efficiently.
