If your worker has been injured, you are required by law to submit the employer report of injury form within 72 hours after becoming aware of an injury or illness. The sooner WCB receives your information, the faster we can determine entitlement for your worker to benefits and services.
You need to 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 disease or condition caused by occupational exposure or activity (such as a mental health concern, poisoning, infection, respiratory disease, dermatitis etc.),
- the need for medical or mental health treatment beyond first aid (assessment by physician, psychologist or mental health provider, physiotherapist, chiropractor, etc.) or
- incurring medical aid expenses (dental treatment, eyeglass repair or replacement, prescription medications, etc.).
