Policy consultation on the Partners in Injury and Disability Prevention Program

September 25, 2015 - At their meeting on Sept. 8, 2015, WorkSafeBC’s governing body, the Board of Directors, approved the release of a discussion paper with options and draft policies to stakeholders for comment.

The Partners Program is a voluntary incentive program intended to motivate B.C. employers to take a proactive role in occupational health and safety. Employers registered in the Partners Program who successfully meet the program requirements achieve a Certificate of Recognition (COR) and become eligible to receive a COR rebate.

This policy review addresses two key issues:
•There is no policy established for the Partners Program to help guide decision-makers.
•Practice direction on whether an employer is considered to be in good standing and entitled to receive a COR rebate, is not well defined.

The discussion paper, draft policies, and information on how to provide feedback can be accessed through the link below.

The consultation period for this item will end on November 27, 2015. The Board of Directors will consider stakeholder feedback before making a decision on the proposed policy.
