Report an Injury

After you provide first aid for your injured worker, and transport them to the closest hospital or medical centre (if necessary), you must report the incident to the WSCC.

Please note that some incidents must be reported orally to 1-800-661-0792. For more information see our webpage on your reporting requirements.

Employer's Report of Incident

Report an incident, injury or dangerous occurrence through the Employer's Report of Incident e-Service on WSCC Connect. The report consists of two sections: First, you will complete the Incident Section and if you indicated there was an injury, the e-Service will advance you to the Injury Section to report.

Employers must submit the fully-completed incident report within three business days, or will incur penalties as listed in the Workers' Compensation Acts. Please note that to report an accident causing serious bodily injury or a dangerous occurrence, you must call the 24-hour Incident Reporting line at 1-800-661-0792 as soon as is reasonably possible and complete and submit the report within three business days.
