What is a Worker's Report of Injury/Disease (Form 6)?

You must fill out a Form 6 (pdf). The Form 6 Reference Guide for Workers (pdf) will give you more information on filling out this form.

Often called just the Form 6, this is a WSIB form that the worker completes and sends to the WSIB after a work-related injury or illness. It is a way for you to tell us the details of what happened to cause the injury or illness. It also provides us with information we need to make decisions about and process your claim. This form is different from the one you may have filled out at work for your employer. 

When you complete and submit the Form 6, it tells us that you are claiming for benefits for a work-related accident.

There is a time limit for you to report. It is important to claim benefits as soon as possible. You have six months from the date of the accident to claim benefits or, for occupational diseases, from the time you learn of the disease.
