Injury awards policy

Policy overview

This policy sets out consideration of a financial award where an employee: 

  • dies whilst carrying out their work 
  • or, sustains an injury as a result of carrying out their work, resulting in a permanent disability 

We may make discretionary interim payments allowing compensation to be given. This may be at an early date where the outcome of the injury is not yet known. We will take such payments into account when we make the final payment. 

We reserve the right to take into account any award arising from civil proceedings. We may consider this in whole or in part.
