. Injured Workers
A work injury is the result of any work-related event that causes a need for medical treatment and/or time away from work. We consider each work injury on an individual basis, but in most cases compensation would apply to injuries that occur while a worker is at work, on company premises or on company business. This includes an occupational disease caused by work.
Take these following steps:
Get medical attention if you need it. Have your health care provider report to the WCB.
Report the incident to your employer immediately.
Report your injury to the WCB by completing the Worker’s Report of Injury (W1) form. Create a WCB Online Account to quickly complete the W1 form.
What happens next?
Participate with your employer, caregiver and the WCB in setting up a personalized return-to-work plan. The plan usually includes treatment, employment services and suitable work duties.
