WCB-Alberta Disability Management Initiative

 

You know your business and we know return-to-work; together, we’d love to help you build (or enhance!) your program.

As an employer, you care about your people. Their health, safety—their ability to recover when hurt, are all things that you are working hard to support everyday.

Our priority is to help injured workers get back on the job safely—but we don’t do this alone.

 As an employer, you play a pivotal role in managing injuries within your workplace . Promoting early and safe return to work for your employees is the key component of an effective disability management program and will help to reduce the human and financial costs associated with an injury.

In addition to our free online seminars, WCB-Alberta has recently partnered with the National Institute of Disability Management and Research (Nidmar) and Pacific Coast University for Workplace Health Sciences (PCU-WHS) to promote disability management with small to mid-size employers. To pilot this partnership, Alberta employers are invited to participate in PCU-WHS’s online Effective Disability Management Programs course. We recognize that 2021 continues to challenge employers, so to help, we are making this course available to WCB account holders (Alberta accounts) at a 50% discounted rate of $125 (total value $250).

Whether you’re in the process of setting up a disability management program, or want to refine an existing one—this course can help you by providing the foundational skills and knowledge required for a successful program.

Space is limited and we’re getting started right away!

Two dates are available for Alberta employers – April 14 and May 12. To save your spot, contact WCB’s Industry Support team today by phoning or emailing Nadia Iwata at 403-205-8051 or nadia.iwata@wcb.ab.ca. Please include your preferred date in your response.

Upon completion of the program, you will have access to direct support from a WCB Industry Specialist as you begin to incorporate new disability management strategies into your organization.

We look forward to hearing from you.
