Critical injury check app (Canada)

A practical tool to qualify workplace injuries



Should the injury be reported?

Each year, over one million workplace injuries occur in Canada*. As an employer, it is important to correctly qualify different types of workplace injuries. Not reporting a critical injury could result in serious consequences for your business.

Our employment and labour team understands the challenges of distinguishing a “minor injury” from a “critical injury.” The Critical Injury Check application was developed to help employers determine if the injury should be reported, and consequently mitigate any legal risks.
