Injury reporting is important. Firstly, so employees receive appropriate treatment and support. Also, to ensure that employers can address any safety issues in the workplace.

INJURIES MUST BE REPORTED SO THAT YOU CAN BE SUPPORTED
Workplace injuries can range from physical cuts and lacerations to pain from repetitive lifting and manual handling. Labourpower is committed to taking all reported injuries seriously. We will work to ensure that:
- All injured workers get the support and help needed
- We review practices to improve workplace health and safety
IMPORTANT: No matter how small the injury may appear, it’s important to report the incident and injury early.
SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT
Understanding the cause of an injury can help reduce work-related injuries and illnesses. ALL injuries (including those that occur outside the workplace) should be reported even if these injuries seem minor. Reporting an injury helps to:
- Make sure you receive appropriate treatment and care
- Ensure any safety issues at work are addressed
- Prevent any reoccurrence of an incident or injury
IMPORTANT: Always report an injury to your supervisor and Labourpower representative —not a co-worker.
IT’S IMPORTANT TO REPORT ALL INJURIES
Labourpower has resources available no matter where you work. This ranges from general information to qualified medical professionals who can assist with treatment plans as well as preventative care. It’s key for you to:
- Firstly, know what actions to take if an incident or injury at work involves you
- Secondly, follow all safety measures and practices in place at the host client
- In addition, understand the danger of the risks and identified hazards around you
- Also, pay attention to all safety messages, signs and follow your training
Finally, report ALL injuries and incidents to your supervisor, no matter how small.
REMEMBER: The sooner you report an incident or injury, then the sooner Labourpower can seek treatment for you and provide you with appropriate care.
