Report of Injury or Occupational Disease (Form 7)

Use this form to report an injury to WorkSafeBC.

To comply with legislative requirements, complete the Employer's Report of Injury or Occupational Disease (Form 7) specific to your ministry/branch within three business days of the injury's occurrence or within three business days of when you first became aware of the injury.

Complete this form if the employee loses time from work or seeks medical attention. If the employee does not seek medical attention and does not lose time, a Form 7 does not need to be submitted. However, supervisors do have to record the injury/incident in the event a claim is made at a later date. Then, a Form 7 can be completed and kept on file in the work unit in case the employee incurs time loss or seeks medical attention at a future date.
