Employer incident investigations (EIIR): Online reporting tool

Employers are responsible for investigating certain incidents or near misses that take place in the workplace and submitting an investigation report to WorkSafeBC. These investigations help employers and WorkSafeBC determine why an incident happened and what can be done to prevent similar situations in the future.

You can now view and submit your incident investigation reports through your online services account, which includes convenient features such as being able to:

  • Create preliminary and full investigation reports
  • Prepopulate information from your preliminary report
  • Save a partially completed report
  • View any prior reports submitted through online services

To do so, you’ll first need to set up access to the “View or submit Employer Incident Investigation Report” tool through one of the following ways:

  • If you are the administrator of your online services account, you can give yourself access by selecting “Change my or another user’s access to online tools” under the Administration menu.
  • If you are not the administrator of your online services account, you will need to request access from the account’s administrator(s). You can do this by selecting “Request a change in my access to online tools” under the My profile menu.

Once you have access, click on the “Health & Safety” tab and you will see a link to “View or submit an Employer Incident Investigation Report”.
