Accident/Incident Reporting Procedures

Employees must report all injuries and accidents, no matter how insignificant they may seem. Significant near miss incidents must also be reported. Employees must also report any situation where the worker experiences any threatening statements or behavior which gives a worker reasonable cause to believe that they are at risk of injury.

All injuries must be reported to the Principal/Supervisor and if necessary the first aid attendant. The employee and Principal/Supervisor will complete the necessary forms and fax them to the District Health, Safety and Wellness Manager within 72 hours of any accident/incident.

Employee completes the WorksafeBC Form 6A. Call WorksafeBC to report your injury. 1-888-967-5377.

Principal/Supervisor completes WorksafeBC Incident Investigation Report with injured worker and worker rep. from Joint Health & Safety committee and faxes form 6A and incident/investigation reports to the school district Health, Safety and Wellness Officer (Judy Dueck). Fax: 604.466.6229
