The Agricultural Industry, which is one of the biggest industries that employ people in SA especially in the rural areas had more than 10 000 workplace accidents in 2017/2018, the most of any industry. This Industry is also one of the most highly regulated in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and also pays some of the highest rates to the Compensation Fund.


The Compensation Fund collected R9.3B from companies during 2018/2019 and during the same period, only R3.9B in benefits were paid. The ineffective and inefficient administration of injury on duty claims will open a company to scrutiny and it becomes more important to have good knowledge of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA) and have a proper system in place at work to deal with the administration. A great number of Inspectors have been employed by the Department of Employment and Labour to ensure that companies adhere to the Labour legislation. 

Companies are compliant by being registered with the Compensation Fund, submit their annual Return of Earnings, and pay their account within 30 days.

The Minister of Employment and Labour announced the new rates for each different industry. These rates are used to calculate the annual assessment.
