COID is a government body that compensates workers who have been injured at work or who have contracted an illness or disease at work. As the person responsible for your employees, you need to understand the logistical processes, and how COID operates, how the registration system works, and about your tariffs. COID is there to safeguard your workers when they are injured and to make sure that you support their compensation by paying your tariffs. The Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA) 130 of 1993 clearly sets out the legal requirements for tariffs, compensation and the limitations for claims for workers who are injured, or who contract illnesses and diseases while they’re at work.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act protect people from being injured or getting sick at work. Nevertheless, injuries can still occur and when this happens, the compensation system – COIDA is in place to assist workers.
Our comprehensive service will assist companies with the administration and processing of claims resulting from work-related illness or injury. We will liaise with the Compensation Commissioner and apply for reductions and rebates.
Our computer software programme, COID Solutions® is an integrated platform which provides management information in relation to injury or disease.
We recently claimed back more than R1 million from the Compensation Commissioner on behalf of one of our clients.
