WSIB Bill 127 – Stop Treading Water and Start Swimming

Manage claims for chronic and traumatic stress in your existing RTW program to get ahead, not left behind.

OMHRA Annual Spring Conference 2018

Thursday April 12, 2018 from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the Niagara Hilton Fallsview.

2018 brings about a more inclusive compensable claim strategy from WSIB that will now review not only Post Traumatic Stress Disorder claims for First Responders but will also entitle all workers to benefits for traumatic or chronic mental stress arising out of, and in the course of, the worker’s employment (WSIB Bill 127 effective January 1, 2018). This dramatic shift from physical limitations to mental health capacity will be a stalling point for many Municipalities that are lost in how to prepare for and manage mental health claims.

Join Alexandra Stinson, R.Kin., CCPE, as she discusses the steps you can take to ensure that chronic and traumatic stress claims can be addressed in your current Early and Safe Return to Work program. This session will provide a practical component whereby participants will audit and review possible options and/or changes that could be made to their current policies or program to ensure they are inclusive of the new Bill 127.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review and understanding of the scope of WSIB Bill 127 and implications for municipalities
  • Understanding of the challenges associated with accommodating mental health claims within existing programs
  • Evaluation of existing program to determine potential gaps using a CSA audit tool to determine gaps and opportunities within existing RTW program
  • Strategies and tools that can be used to address these claims within existing RTW framework
  • Event: Conference
  • Date: Apr 12, 2018
