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.
