29. The Commission may require an employer, who is individually liable to pay the benefit, to insure his workers and keep them insured against accidents in respect of which he may become liable to pay benefit, in an insurance company approved by the Commission, for such amount as the Commission may direct. Such employer shall transmit to the Commission a certificate of insurance in the form approved by it.
In default of the employer complying with the provisions of this section, the Commission may have the workers of such employer insured and recover the amount paid for such purpose from the employer, in the same way as provided for the payment of assessments.
