    Anyone who sustains injuries or who contracts occupational diseases arising out of his/her work, or the estates of employees who die in work-related accidents, are entitled to claim work injury compensation.The Work Injury Compensation Act covers all employees engaged under a contract of service or apprenticeship, regardless of their salary. There are some notable exceptions, including self-employed persons, independent contractors, domestic workers, and members/officers of the SAF, Singapore Policy Force, SCDF, CNB and Singapore Prison Service.
