After a Workplace Injury

Our team at Workplace Health Services is here to help you if you have been injured at work.

Our services include:

  • assisting with the WorkSafeBC claims process,
  • providing support for you to return to work or remain at work,
  • offering ergonomic consultation support, and
  • offering services if the workplace incident involved exposure to human blood or body fluid.

Get help with the WorkSafeBC claims process

Not all workplace accidents require you to submit a WorkSafeBC claim. You will only need to complete a WorkSafeBC claim form describing your accident or injury and return it to us if you:

  • were injured at work and require medical treatment or
  • will likely be off work beyond the day of the incident.

WorkSafeBC will evaluate your claim and if your claim is accepted, you may be provided with rehabilitation, compensation, health care benefits and services.

The UBC Workplace Health Services team can assist with this process. We can help you with:

  • completing and submitting the report of injury form to start a WorkSafeBC claim for any occupational injury or illness that requires medical services or results in you taking time off work,
  • monitoring your claim status and WorkSafeBC benefit payments, and
  • advising you on WorkSafeBC policies and procedures.

Questions?

The WorkSafeBC website provides information about the claims process and will also have the most up-to-date version of the Workers Compensation Act.

If you have questions about the WorkSafeBC claim reporting process, please contact our WCB Claims Assistant.

Get support to return to work or remain at work

If you require Return to Work or Remain at Work services after your workplace injury, we can refer you to a Case Coordinator. Your Case Coordinator will help you return to productive and safe work as soon as possible.
