The most effective way for you to reduce your WCB costs is to improve health and safety at your workplace and strengthen your return to work programs – and we partner with SAFE Work Manitoba and Workplace Safety and Health to promote and help you achieve these ideals.
Preventing workplace injuries is the single most effective way to protect workers and control your workers compensation costs. Investing in workplace safety and health – whether in dollars or time – is well worth it because of the injuries and illnesses prevented and lives saved.
When injuries do occur, an effective return to work program is the best way to minimize the impact of an injury, promote recovery, and manage associated costs. A strong return to work program is a proactive approach to helping injured workers stay at work or return to meaningful and productive work as soon as health permits. Return to work programs can include modified work, temporary alternate work or a gradual return to work.
