For employers

If your worker has been injured, you have 72 hours after becoming aware of an injury or illness to submit the employer report of injury form. The sooner WCB receives your information, the faster we can determine entitlement for your worker to benefits and services.

You should submit a report to WCB if the accident results in, or is likely to result in:

  • lost time or the need to temporarily or permanently modify work beyond the date of accident,
  • death or permanent disability (amputation, hearing loss, etc.),
  • a disabling or potentially disabling condition caused by occupational exposure or activity (poisoning, infection, respiratory disease, dermatitis, etc.),
  • the need for medical treatment beyond first aid (assessment by physician, physiotherapy, chiropractic, etc.) or
  • incurring medical aid expenses (dental treatment, eyeglass repair or replacement, prescription medications, etc.).
