What Happens if You are Injured at Work?

People are employed in a variety of jobs, which range from manual through to office-based. Every workplace has its risks, some greater than others.

If you have an injury at work, you should get help as quickly as you can. Along with informing your employer of the injury, request workers' compensation documents.
While most injuries are immediately visible, some, like whiplash or concussions, might take days to manifest symptoms. Additionally, x-rays don't always reveal all soft tissue damage.
You are entitled to compensation if you suffer an injury or wound.

If you have an injury at work, it's critical to act right away to take the following actions:

  1. Inform your employer and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of this occurrence as soon as possible
  2. For a thorough evaluation of your workplace injuries, contact us.

First Steps for Injured Workers in Calgary

The goal of health and safety laws in Calgary is to safeguard workers at work and lower the likelihood of accidents and injuries.
Employers have a responsibility to safeguard their workers from the hazards of a sickness or injury that could develop while on the job. They are required to pay company and/or statutory sick pay and to report any incidents.

It's vital that you see a professional if you think you could have experienced a long-term damage. A physiotherapist will assist you in identifying any long-term health issues that could result from an accident and affect your day-to-day functioning (walking, playing sports, or even sitting).

1. Ask for medical help if it's necessary.

Do you provide Rehabilitation Care for Workplace Injuries?

We at Caring Hands Physiotherapy are experts in offering specialised rehabilitation services to people who have sustained industrial injuries. In order to co-manage our shared patients, we use a collaborative approach to rehabilitation care in which we collaborate with other doctors, chiropractors, and other ancillary services like physical therapists. This offers continuity of care, greater results, and an improved patient experience overall.

 

What qualifies as being “at work” in terms of an injury?

In accordance with Alberta legislation, executing a task for your employer qualifies as being "at work" (e.g. carrying a huge tray of scalding hot coffees back from Starbucks.) If your injury occurs close to the property, you may also be entitled for worker's compensation (for example, an icy parking lot.)

 

If you find yourself injured at work in Calgary, you should follow a procedure to ensure your health and employee rights are protected. Act immediately to get the help you need, if required file right away for benefits, and firm up a plan for returning to work.
