Debbie Martin Workers’ Compenstion
Emily A. Russell Workers’ Compensation Specialist Biography
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

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!
