Workplace Injuries

If there is a workplace accident

Employees must report the injury to their supervisor as soon as possible.  Security provides first aid response on campus for injuries, and the first aid report forms part of the documentation for a WorkSafeBC claim if one is necessary. At a maximum, employers are obligated to report injuries to WorkSafeBC within 72 hours; however, certain types of incidents or injuries must be reported immediately.

  1. Make the scene safe
  2. Contact Security for first aid (local 3333) or 250-960-7058
  3. Inform your supervisor of the event

After an injury has occurred

  • The supervisor contacts Risk & Safety immediately to report the incident
  • The employee fills out a WorkSafe BC Form 6A: Worker - Employee Report of Injury, which is a description of the event and forwards this document to
  • Risk & Safety facilitates the incident investigation and completes the Form 7 and submits them to WorkSafeBC
  • The information from the Incident Investigation Report is analyzed for ways to prevent similar injuries

 For more information contact Risk & Safety or call (250) 960-5530.
