We coordinate WorkSafeBC claims of occupational injury or illness on behalf of the employer.
If an accident in the workplace results in injury to an employee that causes them to miss time from work or seek medical attention beyond first aid, UBC has a duty to report to WorkSafeBC. UBC’s Safety & Risk Services website has more information about reporting workplace accidents, including manager/supervisor responsibilities.
Once you submit a report in the Centralized Accident/Incident Reporting System (CAIRS), our office will send the Form 7 Employer’s Report of Injury or Occupational Disease to WorkSafeBC. We may reach out to you if we need more information in order to file our report.
The Worker’s Compensation Act allows the employer 3 days to submit the Form 7 following an injury or occupational illness.
We will monitor the claim for a claim decision and coordinate any supported protests or appeals.
We will also connect the injured employee with a Return to Work Advisor to help support their ability to continue working, or return to work once they’re able to do so.
