The Social Security Law obligates establishments subject to its provisions to provide occupational safety and health measures and tools at work sites and to adhere to its conditions and standards. The violating establishments were required to bear the costs of the medical care needed by the injured insured if his injury occurred as a result of the establishment’s violation of the aforementioned obligation, that is, if the injury occurred as a result of not providing occupational safety and health tools, measures and standards stipulated in legislation.
The medical care for the injured person that the facility is obligated to bear in this case includes the costs of medical treatment and hospital stay, the expenses of transporting the injured person from the place of work or residence to the place of treatment and back, and the provision of the necessary rehabilitative services and equipment.
What is required today is for the insurance institution to activate this legal text and verify work accidents and injuries and whether they occurred due to the establishment’s violation of occupational safety and health conditions. Consequently, violating establishments are obligated to bear this financial burden in the event of any injury occurring as a result of their breach of the required occupational safety and health environment, so that this will be a deterrent to negligent establishments, and in order to preserve the safety and lives of workers.
