As an employer, your responsibilities when a worker is injured on the job include:
If the worker misses work time as a result of his or her injury, ensure that he or she calls Teleclaim as soon as possible to report the injury to WorkSafeBC. Otherwise, ensure that he or she completes a Worker's incident and injury report or sends an Application for Compensation and Report of Injury or Occupational Disease (Form 6) to WorkSafeBC.
When filling out the Incident and Injury Report online or completing the Employer's Report of Injury or Occupational Disease (Form 7), it is important to supply the correct payroll information concerning the injured worker.
A work-related injury or disease is one that arises out of and in the course of employment or is due to the nature of employment.
To be covered by WorkSafeBC a worker must have been working when hurt, and the injury must have been caused by something to do with the job in order to be covered by WorkSafeBC.
For a disease, this means that the disease contracted must be caused by the work or the work environment in order to be covered by WorkSafeBC.
Failure to report an injury or coercing a worker not to report an injury
is an offence against the Act and can result in fines. The employer is not
usually required to report to WorkSafeBC if the worker does not lose time
from work and does not seek medical attention. However, some
accidents and incidents do need to be reported regardless of injuries.
