35

Full-time equivalent of employees:
4,609

A brief description of the methodology used to track and calculate the number of recordable incidents of work-related injury or ill health :
The Office of Risk Management has an online form to report an accident, incident occupational disease or near miss https://web30.uottawa.ca/v3/riskmgmtfrm/aioreport.aspx?lang=en

The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, through its program "Safety Check", provides details on workplace injuries of businesses as part of the Province of Ontario's Open Government initiative

Number of allowed lost-time injuries/illnesses per 100 derived full-time equivalent (FTE) workers for the injury year specified, where 100 FTE = 200,000 derived hours. [(Lost-time injuries/illnesses)/Derived hours]*200,000.
Please note: All fatality claims (traumatic & occupational disease) are included in the calculation of injury rates. Provincial statistics for traumatic fatalities are available through WSIB’s By the Numbers statistical report.

Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) is a derived number based on reported payroll to the WSIB and may not match the exact number of employees for a business. The intent of the measure is to measure the proportion of covered workers who had a lost time claim.

Number of allowed no lost-time injuries/illnesses per 100 derived full-time equivalent (FTE) workers for the injury year specified, where 100 FTE = 200,000 derived hours. [(No lost-time injuries/illnesses)/Derived hours]*200,000
