Some Things About Workplace Health And Safety Incident Claims

Having proper information about health and safety issues within your workplace is important when you want to ensure that you are making the proper claims for your workers. There are a number of things you need to ensure that you do so carefully.


Remember, it is an offence for you to do the following:

  • Threaten to dismiss or dismiss an employee when they’re injured
  • Threaten to alter or alter an employee’s position in the company
  • Unfavorably treat the worker in relation to a promotion or reemployment


You need to complete an Employer’s Injury Claim Report, if you have received the following:

  • A Worker’s Injury Claim Form weekly benefits
  • A Worker’s Injury Claim Form for medical and other related expenses, more than your employer excess
  • A Dependent’s Claim for Compensation


Once you’re forwarding a claim, you need to do so within the required timeframe that your WorkSafe Agent suggests. Ensure that you forward your Employer’s Claim Report with the following things:

  • Worker’s Injury Claim Form, which has been completed
  • Certificate/s of Capacity for time off work
  • Other relevant documents (e.g. investigation reports, medical reports, and more)
