CHOICES

General Information

Section 73 of the Workers’ Compensation Act S.Y. 2008 (the "Act") permits Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) to establish incentive programs that encourage employers to prevent injury and occupational diseases, while encouraging workers to return to work.

CHOICES is a voluntary employer incentive program that recognizes and rewards Yukon employers with rebates for workplace training investments made in occupational health and safety (OH&S) and/or return to work (RTW).

CHOICES is an acronym for, and reflects a commitment to, the following workplace practices and philosophy:

Choose:

Healthy Workplaces;

Ownership of Prevention & Return to Work;

Injury Management;

Consensus-Based Programs;

Employers of Choice; and

Safety as Job 1.

Purpose

This policy communicates the objectives of the CHOICES incentive program and provides an overview of the program. This policy outlines how the CHOICES program applies to employers and details eligibility requirements needed to participate in CHOICES.
