Recent Alberta WCB Changes and Health and Safety Impacts for Businesses

(Transcribed from Video at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfJpRJg2P6hIvx7JAQsRAxQ)

There have been some changes to the WCB Act and Regulations this year. Basically what’s happening as of April 1, traumatic psychological injury, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is now compensatable under the WCB Act and Regulations. As of September 1, 2018 if workers worked a year or more at your company, you are going to have to have modified work or alternative work if they’re injured either physically or psychologically.

Purcell Enterprises can do both physical demands analysis and psychological demands analysis, which will put your workers in a job which will not re-injure them. We also do claims management, which is going to be essential for all businesses and companies in Alberta, due to the changes, I believe, of the WCB Act and Regulations. Please call Mary Treadwell at (780) 757-6680, or contact my website where you’ll get a free 20 minute discussion of the changes and how you can meet them. Thank you.
