Filing WSIB COVID-19 claims

  • April 03, 2020

If your client has a COVID-19 related workers compensation claim, the WSIB has provided filing instructions:

  • If your client contracted COVID-19 while at work (has a diagnosis or symptoms of COVID-19), you may file a claim to determine if eligible for WSIB coverage.  
  • If your client believes they were exposed to COVID-19 while at work, but is not ill at this time (does not have a diagnosis or symptoms of COVID-19), please do not file a claim. Instead, you can file an exposure incident form through our Program for Exposure Incident Reporting (PEIR) or Construction Exposure Incident Reporting (CEIR) programs. These are voluntary reporting programs and your client will be assigned an incident number. If they become ill in the future, we'll be able to process their claim faster. 

    To report an exposure, please complete and fax the appropriate form below to 1-888-313-7373 or call the WSIB at 1-800-387-0750, Monday to Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  All industries (except construction): Worker's Exposure Incident Form (PDF) or Employer’s Exposure Incident Form (PDF). Construction sector: Worker's Construction Exposure Incident Form (PDF) or Employer's Construction Exposure Incident Form (PDF).  For additional information, please visit the WSIB website
