WorkSafeBC claims for supervisors

Last updated: November 25, 2021

Supervisors are required by law to complete WorkSafeBC forms whenever incidents or injuries occur, even if they seem minor.

For immediate assistance, refer to Urgent support and reporting.

Workplace incidents and injuries

Employees may be eligible to receive WorkSafeBC benefits if a workplace injury requires medical attention and/or causes them to be absent from work:

  • If the employee loses time from work and/or seeks medical attention, incidents and injuries must be reported using the Safety Incident Reporting Portal (Form 7) within 3 business days of either the occurrence of the incident or when you first became aware of the injury
  • If the employee does not seek medical attention and does not lose time from work, complete the Safety Incident Reporting Portal (Form 7) and submit it using the classification 'first aid only'. This will serve as a record should a claim be made at a later date
  • Changes to Section 5.1 of the Workers Compensation Act have expanded the scope of how mental disorders relating to the workplace may be accepted. Learn more about workplace mental disorders

Mental disorder claims are processed the same as other types of claims.
