An Introduction to Workplace Safety & Insurance
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 webinar provides a basic overview of Workplace Safety and Insurance: who is covered, what are accidents, and reporting and other legal obligations. In addition, employer classification, return to work and appeals are addressed.
You will learn:
- Who needs to register and how the WSIB classifies employers
- What you need to report to WSIB and associated timelines
- What are your obligations in returning an injured worker to work
- What to do if you disagree with a WSIB decision
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!
