Sometimes workers know they have had exposure to a harmful substance at work. Yet they experience no immediate ill effects, as many occupational diseases are latent and only develop if there have been long periods of exposure. Often, symptoms may not present themselves for years.
WorkSafeBC’s Registry allows you to record any workplace exposure you may have had. WorkSafeBC maintain it as a permanent record. It’s an important tool that could help you if you need to file an occupational disease claim in the future.
