How to find what you’re looking for

 

Our site is organized by categories of workers’ compensation information. The categories are on the left and right of each page.

The Table of Contents is a complete list of categories on our site with links to each category’s items.

The workers’ compensation Subject Index has links to workers’ compensation webpages from divisions of the Department of Consumer and Business Services.

Use our Search engine to find what you’re looking for. Just type what you’re looking for in the empty box and click on the search button. We have basic and advanced search levels that we hope are helpful to you.

File formats we use

 

Hypertext markup language or HTML is what we use to create some of our webpages. HTML pages can be identified by the .html at the end of the file name, i.e., http://www.cbs.state.or.us./wcd/docs/aboutsite.html

Some documents, like WCD forms, are available as Microsoft Word 97 & 2000 documents. You may want to read the instructions we’ve written on how to use the forms before you download them.

The balance of our pages are portable document format files or PDFs. You can identify PDFs by the .pdf at the end of the file name, i.e., http://www.oregonwcd.org/docs/rules/436_001.pdf

PDFs require a free piece of software called the Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can download the free Reader from the Adobe site. If you should have any trouble, please call Ramona Barnwell at (503) 947-7637 and she’ll be happy to walk you through the download process.
