Occupational Injury Service (OIS) gives injured workers access to a doctor with experience in work-related injuries. Injured workers are typically seen within 30 minutes of arriving at the clinic. The clinics help injured workers return to work quickly and safely by providing expedited care.
If you've been injured, your employer needs to be signed up for the service
before you can access it. It also has to be your first visit after the injury
happened, unless your first visit was the emergency room (within 96 hours).
Using an OIS clinic for treatment is voluntary. Workers can go to their own doctor if they prefer.
