Program for Exposure Incident Reporting (PEIR) for Employers

PEIR is the Program for Exposure Incident Reporting. It is a voluntary reporting program for employers and workers when an unplanned exposure incident occurs.

An exposure incident is an unplanned exposure to a chemical, physical or biological hazard resulting from a leak, spill, escape, explosion or direct physical contact.

PEIR enables you to easily keep us informed about workplace exposure incidents. That means if an exposed worker becomes ill in the future, we’ll be able to process the claim faster. Collecting relevant information at the time of the exposure ensures a speedier claims process in the future. If you’d like to report an incident, please call 416-344-1000, or toll free at 1-800-387-0750. Also download the Employer’s Exposure Incident Form.
