Workers’ compensation programs in 136 nations are summarized in this chapter and the next. This chapter tells how many of these nations have each of several possible provisions related to coverage, medical expense benefits, disability benefits, death benefits, and funding of the program. As noted in chapter 1, Australia, Canada, and the United States are classified according to the most common province or state characteristics. The next chapter describes how workers’ compensation programs differ among nations according to (1) the continent in which they are located, (2) their income status, and (3) the security system used—a social insurance system, compulsory workers’ compensation insurance, or voluntary workers’ compensation insurance.
