It’s important workers are aware of the return to work process and that you have modified duties available. By orientating new and existing employees on an annual basis, you can provide evidence to show that they were aware of their: rights, roles, and responsibilities in the event of a workplace accident.
In addition, by informing them of the WCB process, you create a culture that encourages participation which allows you to manage work-related injuries with early and safe return to work. This reduces the impact a claim has on the worker and the company.
One of the ways to prevent a lost time claim/incident (LTI) is to ensure workers are aware of their responsibilities when it comes to WCB and workplace injuries. This orientation is designed for workers to be aware of their rights, roles, and responsibilities as they relate to return to work.
