A worker was injured while working on a job for our company; can I just send them home?
No. It’s important to ensure an injured worker receives appropriate medical treatment for injuries, this also includes first aid. If it’s a minor injury and the worker is sent home, the injury will be considered a LTI (Lost Time Incident). It’s important to ensure all workplace injuries are properly managed to ensure the workers’ health. More information regarding the management of workplace injuries can be found in Section 16 of the Health & Safety Manual accessible in the members’ area.
