What happens if a GigSmart worker is injured during a Shift Gig?

File an Occupational Accident Insurance claim for injury coverage.

If a GigSmart worker is injured while actively working a Shift Gig through the GigSmart Get Gigs app, an Occupational Accident Insurance claim will need to be reported immediately by the worker.

To report a claim, the GigSmart worker will need to call the OneBeacon claims call center at 1-877-441-6274. The call center is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The worker will need to provide policy #216-002-433, along with his/her phone number and email address. A OneBeacon claims adjuster will be assigned to the worker claim and will guide the worker through the claims process. The claims adjuster may request additional information and it is important that the worker provide that information as soon as possible to avoid any delays in the handling of the worker claim.

If the injury requires immediate medical attention, the worker should go to the nearest hospital or medical facility for medical treatment or dial 911. The GigSmart worker should let the medical facility know they are an Independent Contractor and have Occupational Accident Insurance (OAI).
