Injured at Work? Here's What to Do

Even if there’s a good injury prevention program at your worksite, you can still be injured while on the job. It’s important to report any work-related injuries as quickly as possible, even if you think it’s no big deal. Reporting workplace injuries is your right.
Safety hazard, safety risk: What’s the difference?

A safety hazard is anything that could harm you or other people. For example, a knife is a hazard because it might cause a cut. A wet floor is a hazard because it might cause you to fall.

A safety risk is the chance, or likelihood, that you’ll get hurt. For example, if you work in the agriculture or forestry sector, you’re at greater risk of injury than if you work in the business sector.
