The Workers' Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) in the North West Territories announced the release of a new Code of Practice on Return to Work (RTW) Programs.
The code outlines the key components and steps to develop a RTW program. These include:
• safe modified duties,
• alternate work,
• adjusting workloads to accommodate a recovering worker,
• maintaining the safety of co-workers.
The code, along with the WSCC Employer's Guide to Return to Work, gives stakeholders a comprehensive resource to understand their legal obligations. It also shows best practices in implementing their legislative requirements.
This is the 18th Code of Practice produced by WSCC.
