The Workplace Insurance Level I course examines the history of the compensation system in Ontario and the development of compensation legislation and the general principles of the system. Participants will learn how the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) determines whether an injury is compensable and learn about some workplace injuries and occupational illnesses. The course covers how to properly file a claim, and includes the timelines that are applicable. Worker and Employer obligations are covered as well as roles and responsibilities with respect to work reintegration. Protections under other legislation are also discussed should a return to work plan not provide sufficient protection to a worker in a work reintegration program. Participants will learn the significance of legislation (WSIA), regulations and policy, including changes to the legislation and the effects these changes have on benefits.
