In an effort to maintain the safety and well-being of staff, clients and the community, WHSCRD has enacted a number of social distancing actions to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Walk-in or in-person services at WHSCRD have been temporarily suspended. We will be operating at reduced capacity, thereby affecting hearings and internal processing times. To the extent possible, clients are asked to utilize email for applications and other required forms and email to: whscrd@gov.nl.ca

Services continue to be available through email (whscrd@gov.nl.ca), telephone (709-729-5542 or 1-800-336-1111) or FAX (709-729-6956).

Hearings for the foreseeable future will proceed by teleconference. We will monitor the situation as it evolves and adjust accordingly.  If you have a hearing scheduled you will be contacted by our staff with further details.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during our efforts to minimize the further spread of COVID-19.

The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Review Division (WHSCRD) is committed to improving services to injured workers and employers of Newfoundland and Labrador.
