A workplace cohort includes a group of workers within a defined location or workplace claiming benefits for a work-related illness resulting from a common exposure(s).
The table includes occupational disease claims by cohort, not all occupational disease claims registered with the WSIB in total or for the employers/groups listed. For information on occupational disease claim statistics in general, please see our By the Numbers statistical report.
Due to the historical nature of the data reported, all cohorts may not be captured in the table. To report potential missing cohorts, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that you must have a WSIB claim number to ensure that we have registered your claim to determine entitlement to WSIB benefits and services. If you are not sure if you have a claim registered with the WSIB for a work-related illness, or to file a new claim, please contact us at 1-800-387-0750.
