General Information

The Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") states that where a worker suffers a work-related injury, the worker’s employer shall immediately provide and pay for emergency transportation for the worker to a hospital, medical practitioner, home or other place that may be required by the worker’s condition.

Further, the Act states that where an employer fails to provide emergency transportation and another person or the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) incurs expense at doing so, the YWCHSB shall reimburse the person and shall recover the amount from the employer.

The Minimum First-aid Regulations, pursuant to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, state that the first-aid attendant shall be in charge of all first aid treatment until medical aid is available. The decisions of the first-aid attendant shall not be over-ruled by supervisory personnel.

Purpose

This policy provides direction to employers and the YWCHSB on the provision of emergency transportation for injured workers.
