It is the responsibility of the employer to report serious workplace incidents immediately to the Workplace Safety and Health Branch (WSH), as required by Manitoba's Workplace Safety and Health Regulation, Part 2.7.
You can contact WSH 24 hours a day, seven days a week to report a serious incident, injury or fatality:
1-855-957-SAFE (7233) (toll-free in Manitoba)
204-957-SAFE (7233) (in Winnipeg)
Select ‘Option 1’
The employer must also ensure that first aid is provided to victims, 911 is called for medical aid and the scene of the incident is secured to preserve evidence.
