In Tanzania, employers are required to obtain and maintain an insurance policy with an insurer approved by the Government in respect of any liability that the employer may incur.

In case of death of workers, the Fund is responsible for compensating dependants as per set criteria. The current rate of WCF is 1% of gross salary. How WCF works; • Notice of Accident by Employee to Employer - Written or verbal notice of any occupational disease or accident must be given by or on behalf of the employee concerned to the employer after such a disease or accident happens. • Notice of injury or accident by employer to the Labour office -An employer must report the accident to the Directorate of Occupational Safety and Health Services within seven days after having received notice of an accident. • Inquiry by Director - After having received notice of an occupational accident or disease the Director shall make such inquiries as are necessary to decide upon any claim or liability in terms of this Act. • The Director General may request the particulars of the claim to be furnished by the employer or employee. -Failure of the employer to comply within 21 days
