Incident or Injury – What’s the difference?

Incident

  • An incident is an accidental work injury or exposure that does not require a licensed medical service provider to provide care for the condition (first aid only), and there is no lost time from work, permanent disability or death.
  • An incident report notifies the employer that a worker had an accidental injury or exposure that may result in a claim or need for medical treatment in the future.

Injury

  • An injury claim is an accidental work injury or exposure that does require a licensed medical service provider to provide care for the condition. An injury may result in death or require lost time from work.
