In-Person Seminar

Workers’ Compensation Bootcamp (Level 1)

The world of workers’ compensation can be complex and frustrating for those responsible for managing WSIB claims. Our Workers’ Compensation Bootcamp Level I will assist Claims Management Personnel, Human Resources Personnel, Managers and Supervisors to understand the obligations that arise when workplace injuries/illnesses occur, tools to navigate the claims management process, and how to respond effectively to issues that can arise over the course of a claim.
 
This level is geared towards individuals with entry-level to mid-level knowledge of workers’ compensation claims management topics, and is also often taken as refresher training.
 
This seminar will provide:
  • An overview of Ontario’s Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997 with a focus on important employer obligations
  • Claim suppression: the rules and how to avoid costly penalties (new!)
  • A description of the inner workings of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and direction about key contacts for claims and account issues
  • Information about effective accident investigations and how to effectively complete the Employer’s Report of Injury (Form 7)
  • How to monitor claims costs (new!)
  • WSIB decisions and a review of Time-limits (new!)
  • Techniques and strategies for effective claims management beginning on the date of injury
  • An overview of the Early and Safe Return to Work (ESRTW) process, including forms to be completed, and techniques for overcoming barriers
  • An Update on the WSIB’s Rate Framework  (new!)
We are excited to introduce our extended format training (now a full day for both levels!) to include breakout sessions, Case Study discussions, and new content on a number of topics!
