Injuries-on-Duty-COIDA-WCA-Assessments-Employers-Registration COIDA / WCA and the Amended Tariffs of Assessment – Introduction Why Employers must register for COIDA / WCA Registration for the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases, more commonly referred to simply as COIDA / WCA, provides employers across all industries with compliance through minimal effort on their part where registration, the submission of earnings, and the obtaining of the Letter of Good Standing (LOGS) is concerned. All employers must understand the logistical processes involved with such claims, how COID operates, how the system works during registrations, and what tariffs there are which must be paid by employers annually according to their risk ratios. COID serves the fundamental purpose of protecting workers should they have injured themselves while also ensuring that employers support the compensation that is required by paying certain annual tariffs. The aim of COIDA is to provide all employees with adequate compensation in the event of disablement, which is caused by occupational injuries and diseases, which are sustained or contracted by employees throughout their employment or should death result from such injuries or diseases. This also helps to provide for any matters which are connected therewith. Businesses that have more than one branch or that carry on more than one class of business may be required to register with COID for each place or class of business. This is to be determined by the Commissioner.   It is crucial for all employers to apply for COIDA as non-compliance with such is considered a criminal offence and employers may subsequently be liable to prosecution.

This tariff is calculated according to the risk ratio pertaining to the employer’s nature of business. The employer’s assessment fee is calculated by adding all employee salaries, both temporary and permanent, together, dividing it by 100, and multiplying the total by the assessment tariff. This fee is payable within 30 days of the assessment, according to Section 86.1 of COIDA.
