(1) Any person wishing to inspect or copy public records of WSIB may submit the request in writing using the WSIB's request form, or by letter, or email addressed to The request should include the following information:
• Name of requestor;
• Address of requestor;
• Other contact information, including telephone number and any email address;
• Identification of the public records adequate for the public records manager to locate the records; and
• The date of the request.
(2) A request for all, or substantially all, of the WSIB's records is not a valid request for identifiable records.
(3) If the requestor wishes to have copies of the records made instead of inspecting them, he or she should so indicate. Costs will be assessed in compliance with WAC 287-02-075.
(4) A request form is available for use by requestors at the administrative office of the WSIB and online at
(5) Requests may also be submitted to the receptionist at the WSIB by telephone or in person; however, the requesting party may be asked to reduce the request to writing for the sake of clarity. Alternatively, the public records officer may confirm receipt of the request and restate the substance of the request in writing.
(6) The WSIB may deny a bot request, or a request that is one of multiple requests made by the same requestor within a twenty-four-hour period, if responding to the multiple requests would cause excessive interference with essential WSIB functions and the WSIB reasonably believes the request to be automatically generated by a computer program or script.
