Polish Connection / Reporting occupational injuries
Every accident at work and occupational disease must be reported by the employer to the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority (Norw. Arbeidstilsynet) and to NAV. If the employer does not report the accident or disease, it can be done by the employee himself. The time limit for submitting such a report shall be one year from the accident or from the date on which the occupational disease was diagnosed.
The recognition of an accident or disease by NAV entitles a person to avoid paying his own contribution for the treatment of the effects of the incident that took place in Norway. In addition, provided that the permanent bodily injury is at least 15% after treatment, there is
a possibility to claim compensation from NAV.
