And is that during his time in the service of his employer, a worker could suffer numerous contingencies. Which they may or may not be considered work-related accident will cause, if possible incapacity proceeding (temporary or permanent) for the same, the amount of the benefit associated with it vary (being higher, of course, if that had that as an occupational injury). What circumstances could be considered accidents? – In general, those that occur during working time and premises of the Company (being the typical and generic, such as when a worker suffers amputation about getting it caught in a machine). – Those who produce “on mission”, that is, trips and activities made outside the ordinary place of work by the employee under specific orders entrusted by his employer (eg, going to meet a customer). – So-called “commuting accident” that workers would suffer the move to go or return to the place or employment, under certain very specific requirements.
