An injury or illness report is a WSIB form that you fill out and send to us after you are injured or become ill at work. It’s a way for you to tell us what happened to cause the injury or illness. It also gives us information we need to process and make decisions about your claim. This form is different from the one you may have filled out at work for your employer.
When you disagree with a decision regarding your claim, an Intent to object form must be completed in order for an appeal to take place.
