Department of Workforce Development - Process for Handling Work Injuries & Illness
*New Online Reporting for Injury and Illness Forms*
The Department of Safety and Professional Services is excited to announce a new online injury and illness reporting system. This online system allows public employers to submit their yearly injury and illness summary through the internet. The State of Wisconsin requires that
by March 1st of every year, all public employers submit a summary of their previous year's injuries and illnesses. This summary was previously submitted on form SBD-10710.
Public Sector Employers: Please visit the DSPS
Electronic Safety and Licensing Application (eSLA) to enter, review, and submit your previous year's injury and illness summary. After submitting your information, you will receive a confirmation email which contains a printable version of the injury and illness summary which must be posted in your workplace from February 1st through April 30th.
If you do not have a UserID and Password for the DSPS Electronic Safety and Licensing Application, contact your county Public Sector Safety Inspector noted on the Inspection District Map located on the right side menu of this page.
