There have been new changes to the Safe Advantage program as of June 2014
Safe Advantage Policy 09.02 was amended with respect to Forfeiting Refunds and Receiving Additional Penalties. This section was revised as listed below:
- an employer qualifies for a refund forfeits the refund if they fail or do not submit the Questionnaire;
- an employer qualifies for a refund forfeits the refund if they are in non-compliance with a safety inspection at the time of the release year. Non-compliance exists when an inspection has occurred and the employer disregards corrective actions within the time frame stipulated by the WSCC;
- an employer qualifies for a refund forfeits the refund if they have been fined the maximum penalty payable under section 19 of the Workers’ Compensation General Regulations within a 12-month period prior to the release year; and
- an employer receiving a penalty has their penalty increased by 50 percent if they fail the Questionnaire.
COR Employers, those employers that hold a current Certificate of Recognition (COR) from the Northern Safety Association are now able to provide their certificate in lieu of submitting the Management Practices Questionnaire Section One: Prevention. Currently return to work is not a component of COR, however in September of 2014 it will be included as an appendix.
The changes to recognize the COR audit in place of the Safe Advantage questionnaire and verification will be a phased in approach over three years. As each employer is audited by the new COR audit that includes return to work, the WSCC will recognize it. Until such time the employer has complete the audit the Safe Advantage verification will take place accordingly. We are currently exploring other external audit systems.
