A work injury is the result of any work-related event that causes a need for medical treatment and/or time away from work.
The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) considers each work injury on an individual basis, but in most cases compensation would apply to injuries that occur while a worker is at work, on company premises or on company business. This includes an occupational disease caused by work.
It is against the law in Saskatchewan not to report a workplace injury. Employees must fill out a W1 form when they are injured at work.
