Every incident must be immediately reported to the worker’s direct supervisor and if applicable, the first aid attendant on duty. After any incident that results in an injury that requires medical treatment for a worker, and near misses with the potential of causing serious injury, an incident investigation must be conducted to:
- Determine the cause of the incident.
- Identify any unsafe conditions or work procedures that contributed to the incident.
- Find ways to prevent similar incidents from happening.
- Prepare an Employer Incident Investigation Report (EIIR) and if applicable notify WorkSafeBC (WSBC).
