Personal Information and Privacy

The WSIB collects personal information from or about injured workers in the course of its operations. This information covers a wide range of subjects and is used to administer the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA), case management, and programs of the Board. FIPPA provides individuals with a right of access to their own personal information. Individuals can access a copy of their claim file outside of FIPPA by submitting the Copy of Claim File form.

FIPPA also safeguards an individual’s privacy by ensuring this personal information is not disclosed to others without authorization. Furthermore, individuals are not only given access to their own personal information, but they also have the right to request a correction to information they believe to be inaccurate through this form.
