What is a workplace accident?

A workplace accident or occupational accident is exactly what it sounds like; an accident that occurs while working or at work which can lead to physical or mental issues and injuries. According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), more than 337 million workplace accidents happen each year, which contribute to more than 2.3 million workplace deaths annually.

What to do after a Workplace Accident?

  • See your doctor immediately or go to the hospital to document that your injury is work related.
  • Report your accident to your employer and fill out any appropriate forms to start the WCB claim process.
  • WCB will send you paperwork after several days, if you do not receive anything, please call WorkSafe BC at 1-888-621-7233.
  • Once your claim is approved, we can start treatment.
  • Give us a call to book your initial assessment. Make sure to mention that your injury is work related when booking your appointment and checking in.
