Introduction to Workplace Safety & Insurance

May 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Ontario Worker’s Compensation system is constantly changing and becoming more complex every year. The Office of the Employer Adviser (OEA) has helped thousands of employers understand their obligations, roles and responsibilities under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act since 1985.

This presentation explains what Workplace Safety & Insurance is and who is covered.  It provides critical tools and information to enable you to meet your obligations, complete the required paperwork accurately and avoid expensive fines.

You will learn:

  • What injuries need to be reported and the timelines
  •  About tools and tips to help manage WSIB in your workplace
  •  About return to work and re-employment requirements
  •  Obligations on the workplace parties and associated penalties

Join Elizabeth Parkinson, Employer Specialist who will walk you through the process, show you how to manage these issues skilfully, and answer your questions and explain how the OEA can help you!
