If you are injured or nearly injured while at UNB, you must complete a UNB Accident Report Form within 24 hours (https://es.unb.ca/apps/accident-report/); and, if treatment is required (first aid inclusive or more) notify Security immediately at 506-453-4830.

Also, please note that WorkSafeNB must be immediately notified of the following:
• Any accidental explosion or exposure to a biological, chemical, or physical agent, whether or not a person is injured;
• Any catastrophic event or equipment failure that results, or could have resulted, in an injury;
• Worker admission to a hospital facility as an in-patient;
• A loss of consciousness;
• Burns requiring medical attention beyond first aid treatment;
• Fractures (other than to fingers or toes);
• Loss of vision in one or both eyes;
• Deep lacerations requiring medical attention beyond first aid treatment;
• Amputations; and
• Fatalities.

Immediate notification to WorkSafeNB can be made by calling 1-800-222-9775 and providing incident details.

If the worker has sought medical attention or has missed time from work, you must also complete a form 67 and submit it online at worksafenb.ca/electronic-form-67 or by fax at 1-888-629-4722. All forms must be received within three days of the workplace accident.
