If you get injured at work, you must report it to your employer immediately and to the WSCC. Here's a checklist of what you need to do:
- Get immediate medical attention if necessary.
- Tell your healthcare provider that you were hurt at work and ask them to send your medical reports to the WSCC.
- Tell your employer you are hurt.
- Fill out the WSCC Claim: Worker's Report of Injury form and send it to the WSCC as soon as possible.
- Ask your employer to send their completed WSCC Claim: Employer's Report of Injury form to the WSCC within three days of your incident (as per legislation).
You can learn more about the claims process by viewing the Claims Process Map.
