As a salaried medical staff member (i.e., an employee of PHSA), if you have a work-related injury, incident or near-miss, please do the following as soon as possible:
- Seek first aid or medical attention if required.
- Report incident to a) your manager/supervisor and b) the Provincial Workplace Health Contact Centre (PWHCC) at 1-866-922-9464 (www.whcallcentre.ca) any day between 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., including statutory holidays.
- Callers outside of these hours, or those who reach voicemail during business hours, are asked to leave a message including: full name, area of work (agency and/or department), a phone number and best time for a return call. Messages are returned as soon as possible - usually within 24 hours, or the following business day.
- Participate in an incident follow-up with your manager.
Salaried medical staff can report a workplace injury, exposure or incident, including: allergic reactions; exposures to blood, body fluids or chemicals; acts of aggression or threats; psychological trauma or near misses.
A PWHCC operator will work with a medical staff member to complete the initial incident report and then send an incident follow-up notification to the appropriate department so that the follow-up can be completed.
