This two hour program outlines from the employer’s perspective:

  • the employers’ role – what they can ask, what they can’t ask, what their options are when injury does occur (such as which doctor to take someone too)
  • how to train and on-board staff to mitigate claims
  • what the supervisor should do when an injury occurs, how to train the supervisors, what to have in their policies
  • information on how to mitigate work related injuries
  • how to deal with work related injuries

In short, how to maintain employee safety and your ISNet safety rating.

Topics to also include some perspective on WCB policies of Saskatchewan vs. other provinces and what we could ask for in Saskatchewan to put us on equal footings with other provinces.
