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