Injury Package - Workplace Injury or Illness (WSIB)
All work-related incidents, illnesses and injuries must be reported by completing the Illness or Injury Incident Report Form and submitting it to Occupational Health and Wellness (OHW) by fax 519-780-1796 or upload to the OHW Secure Drive within 24 hours of the incident.
In the event of a workplace injury or illness, where outside medical assistance is required (health care) or may potentially be required an Injury Package must be obtained by the employee, usually provided by the Supervisor. This package includes: the WSIB Employee Report of Injury/Disease (From 6), WSIB Functional Abilities Form (Form 8), a letter to the employee, and a letter to the health care practitioner.
The Form 8 must be completed by a physician or regulated healthcare practitioner and returned by the employee to OHW by fax 519-780-1796 or upload to the OHW Secure Drive before the next workday.
