Workplace Injuries (WSIB)

workplace injuries treatment hamiltonNo job is 100% safe. Some jobs are more dangerous than others, but every job has some risk of injury. Even office workers are at risk for injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Main Street Health offers comprehensive rehabilitation services for a safe, sustainable return to work after a work-related injury.

What should you do if you get injured at work?

If you experience a work-related injury, no matter how minor, you should immediately:

  1. 1) Report the incident to your employer and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)
  2. 2) Contact Main Street Health for a complete workplace injury assessment

Prompt reporting and assessment will protect your health and your legal rights.

Not all injuries can be seen or felt immediately. Whiplash or concussion may not show symptoms for hours or even days. Soft tissue injuries don’t show up on x-rays and may not always be accompanied by cuts or bruises. Even if you don’t feel hurt, get a professional assessment after any workplace accident.
