Oct. 9: WSCC Injury Reporting Policy Revised


The WSCC recently revised Policy 11.02 Reporting an Injury to clearly explain when workers and employers must submit Report of Injury forms. Employers must now submit an employer’s form to the WSCC within three working days of first knowing or having reason to believe any of the reporting criteria were met or upon request from the WSCC. The policy now also defines “injury” as physical or psychological harm or damage, and includes exposure to a foreign or contagious substance that may result in an immediate or delayed reaction.
