  • A (dermatological) occupational accident (§ 8 SGB VII) is defined as a skin defect if one or more harmful occupational influences have caused the defect significantly during a work shift (see also occupational dermatoses and occupational skin diseases). If a skin defect was caused by the exposure to several work shifts (e.g. the sunburn of a road worker), this can still be an occupational accident.
  • The form "Medical accident report" (F 1050) must be sent to the accident insurance institution/BG on the day of the first claim (source: e.g.; form texts/doctors). In contrast to occupational diseases (of the skin), accidents at work can be treated immediately at the expense of the BG according to the rates of the so-called "general treatment" of the UV-GOÄ.
