What will WorkSafeBC pay for?

February 03, 20231 min read

WorkSafeBC provides insurance coverage for workplace injuries and illnesses to workers and employers in British Columbia. Specifically, WorkSafeBC will pay for the following:

1. Wage loss benefits: If a worker is unable to work due to a workplace injury or illness, WorkSafeBC will pay wage loss benefits to compensate the worker for their lost earnings.

2. Medical expenses: WorkSafeBC will pay for necessary medical treatment related to the workplace injury or illness, including hospitalization, surgery, medication, and rehabilitation.

3. Rehabilitation services: WorkSafeBC will pay for rehabilitation services to help injured workers recover and return to work, including physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, and vocational rehabilitation.

4. Death benefits: If a worker dies as a result of a workplace injury or illness, WorkSafeBC will pay death benefits to the worker's dependents.

The specific benefits that a worker may be eligible for depend on the nature and severity of their injury or illness, and the circumstances of the incident. It is important for workers to report workplace injuries and illnesses to their employer and WorkSafeBC as soon as possible, and to follow the recommended medical treatment and rehabilitation plan to maximize their chances of receiving benefits.

In addition to these benefits, WorkSafeBC also provides services to help prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, including safety training, consultation, and inspection.

It is important for employers and workers to understand their rights and obligations under WorkSafeBC, as non-compliance can result in fines and legal action.
