Accidents and Occupational Diseases in a Working Area
Employers must provide compulsory accident insurance for employees performing hazardous work (granted the status of a high-risk performer).
Employees’ insurance is an additional benefit offered by an employer that provides increased protection for employees.
Georgian law provides the basic requirements and general principles of the preventive measures related to occupational safety, existing and potential hazards, the prevention of accidents and occupational diseases, the training of employees and the provision of information and consultation to such employees, and the equal participation of employees in matters related to occupational safety and health care.
Accidents in working areas are classified according to their outcomes and the number of people injured at one time, as follows:
a) A minor accident — a minor injury as a result of an accident without the loss of working capacity or with the loss of working capacity for not more than three days
b) A moderate accident — an injury as a result of an accident with the loss of working capacity from 3 to 40 days
c) A serious accident — the development of permanent disability, or serious damage to health, and/or the development of temporary disability for more than 40 calendar days as a result of an accident
d) A fatal accident — the death of a person (an employee or other person) as a result of an accident in the workplace or within a year after the accident
