Every year, hospital emergency departments in Ontario treat an average of 100,000 cases of work-related injuries or illnesses. What can the records of these cases tell us about the reporting of work-related injuries and illnesses to Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)? In this presentation, Dr. Cameron Mustard shares findings from research linking WSIB claims data with records of hospital emergency department visits over a fifteen-year period (2004-2017). He outlines potential uses of these records and discusses the proportion of visits that are not reported as workers’ compensation claims.
