Hurt at Work?

What is it?

A work injury is the result of any work-related event that causes a need for medical treatment and/or time away from work.

What is the standard?

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.
