If you feel an accident, injury, illness or even gradual onset of pain is work related, you must report this to your employer immediately and have the employer complete an incident report. Once your employer is aware that a work-related injury or occupational disease has caused you to:
- obtain health care and/or,
- be absent from your regular work,
- require modified duties at less than regular pay,
- require modified duties at regular pay for more than 7 calendar days after the date of the accident,
they are obligated to fill out a “Form 7” which is sent to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.
