Cover for the Contingencies of Work-Related Injuries and Occupational Diseases

The protection that the Social Security system grants to the included individuals is not uniform, but rather it changes depending on the original cause of the protected situation, where the origin could be both "common" or "professional".

Whether the contingency is common or professional has some important effects with regard to the necessary requirements, scope of protection, managing body and funding.

In the case of professional contingencies, the LGSS allows the management to be undertaken by the "Mutual Societies for Work-Related Injuries and Occupational Diseases", granting the employer a right to opt for these when filling out the registration forms or subsequently, through the "association document", which has an initial validity of one year.
