Injuries

A work-related injury is an injury that is caused by your employment. You can see the full definition in Policy EN-01 Arising Out Of and In The Course Of Employment.

If one of your workers is injured at work, they should get medical attention right away, if needed.

The injured worker doesn’t have to report their injury to us, but they must report the details of their injury to you, their employer.

As the employer, you are required to report a workplace injury to us by completing and submitting the Employer’s Report of Injury/Illness within three days of the injury. If you fail to do so, you may be fined for late reporting.

If there was a serious accident or injury as defined in section 30 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, you must report a serious incident or injury to us.

Regardless of the severity of the injury, you must document the incident and keep the record for three years.

If a worker wishes to file a claim for compensation, they should read the information and complete the form on our claims process page. If their claim is specific to hearing loss, they should follow our process for hearing loss claims.

It is an offence under the Workers’ Compensation Act for anyone to discourage a worker from making a claim for compensation.
