DEFENSE
 
BASED
 
ACT
 
INSURANCE
 
Defense
 
Based
 
Act
 
Established
 
in
 
1941,
 
the
 
primary
 
goal
 
of 
 
the
 
Defense
 
Base
 
Act
 
was
 
to
 
cover
 
workers
 
on
 
military
 
bases
 
outside
 
the
 
United
 
States.
 
The
 
act
 
was
 
amended
 
to
 
include
 
public
 
works
 
contracts
 
with
 
the
 
government
 
for
 
the
 
building
 
of 
 
non
military
 
projects
 
such
 
as
 
dams,
 
schools,
 
harbours,
 
and
 
roads
 
abroad.
 
Today,
 
almost
 
any
 
contract
 
with
 
an
 
agency
 
of 
 
the
 
U.S.
 
government,
 
for
 
work
 
outside
 
the
 
U.S.,
 
whether
 
military
 
in
 
nature
 
or
 
not,
 
will
 
likely
 
require
 
Defense
 
Base
 
Act
 
coverage.
 
Due
 
to
 
the
 
recent
 
abundance
 
of 
 
Department
 
of 
 
Defense
 
and
 
other
 
Government
 
contracts
 
being
 
awarded,
 
it
 
is
 
more
 
important
 
than
 
ever
 
that
 
companies
 
are
 
familiar
 
with
 
the
 
Defense
 
Base
 
Act.
 
DBA
 
adopts
 
the
 
provisions
 
of 
 
Longshore
 
and
 
Harbor
 
Worker’s
 
Compensation
 
Act
 
with
 
but
 
a
 
few
 
exceptions.
 
The
 
insurance
 
requirements
 
for
 
the
 
DBA
 
are
 
identical
 
to
 
those
 
found
 
in
 
LHWCA.
 
Purpose:
 
To
 
provide
 
compensation
 
for
 
disability
 
and
 
death
 
to
 
civilians
 
employed
 
at
 
American
 
military
 
bases
 
outside
 
the
 
Continental
 
U.S.
 
Who
 
Requires
 
DBA
 
Coverage?

Any

military
 
contract
 
with

government
 
which
 
has
 
been
 
deemed
 
necessary
 
to
 
U.S.
 
National
 
Security.
 
 
Those
 
employees
 
that
 
provide
 
services
 
funded
 
by

regular
 
military

above.
 
Who
 
is
 
covered?
 
 
Any
 
employee

of 
 
nationality
 
 
All
 
employees
 
of 
 
sub

and
 
their
 
sub

Prime

is
 
responsible
 
for
 
ensuring
 
that
 
the
 
subcontractor
 
has
 
required
 
DBA
 
insurance.
 
If 
 
the
 
subcontractor
 
fails
 
to
 
secure
 
DBA
 
coverage,
 
the
 
prime
 
contractor
 
will
 
be
 
liable
 
for
 
and
 
be
 
required
 
to
 
secure
 
the

benefits.
 
 
If 
 
any
 
employer
 
fails
 
to
 
secure
 
DBA
 
they
 
can
 
face
 
fines
 
and
 
imprisonment.
 
 
If 
 
the
 
employer
 
is
 
a
 
corporation
 
and
 
fails
 
to
 
secure
 
DBA,
 
the
 
president,
 
secretary

shall

payable
 
under
 
the
 
Act
 
for

its

Technical
 
requirements
 
and
 
filings
 
The
 
initial
 
technical
 
requirement
 
of 
 
the
 
Act
 
is
 
to
 
report
 
the
 
injury
 
immediately
 
to
 
one’s
 
immediate
 
supervisor.
 
Notice
 
of 
 
the
 
injury
 
should
 
also
 
be
 
given
 
in
 
writing.
 
Once
 
that
 
is
 
done,
 
medical
 
treatment
 
is
 
generally
 
offered.
 
It
 
is
 
the
 
employee’s
 
responsibility
 
to
 
file
 
a
 
claim.
 
This
 
is
 
required
 
within
 
one
 
year
 
of 
 
the
 
date
 
of 
 
injury
 
or
 
the
 
last
 
payment
 
of 
 
compensation,
 
whichever
 
is
 
later.

benefits

covered
 
employees
 
injured

in
 
the
 
course

not
