Workplace Education Agreement

A student who suffers from an injury or illness that suffers injury or illness during the employment or education component of the job or experience component during the placement or experience component must report the injury or illness to the employer and teacher concerned with all the details, including the exact time, location and circumstances in which the illness was sustained. A work-related injury or illness that requires only first aid treatment should not be reported to the WSIB, but a recording of the details must be kept by the school`s management. The agreement must also be signed for students aged 14 and over if they participate in shadow work experiences/partnerships that involve hands-on work for more than one day. In the event of an injury or illness in the workplace requiring health treatment, the student must complete the WSIB Work Report on Injuries/Illnesses (Form 6). By completing a report on Form 6, the student is entitled to benefits and accepts that his or her physician may provide the placement professional with personal information about the student`s ability to return to work. The student must send a copy of the report to the school principal`s representative, who must send a copy to the ministry. Note that WSIB only delivers benefits for up to two weeks (for example. (B) health care or loss of services) if the student does not submit a report on Form 6. Parties must complete and sign a training form before the student begins the job training program to ensure that WSIB coverage is provided by the Ministry of Education.

This memorandum instructs principals and schools on coverage under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA), 1997, for students, including adults who participate in various training programs (also known as experience learning programs) in which the student is considered a worker. These programs include short-term opportunities such as work experience, longer-term opportunities such as co-operative training and practical internships, which may encompass some or all of the individualized programs of some alternative apprenticeship (CSA) students. In all types of vocational training programs, local businesses and agencies work with headteachers to provide students with broad learning opportunities. Because these programs are based on education experience, not productivity, students generally do not receive salaries from the employment giver. (Student expense or fee allowances are not considered salaries for the purposes of safety and insurance committee benefits.) The WEA form must be completed for all students who are taking vocational training or experimental apprenticeship programs. For students who do not receive a salary or who are not covered by their employer, filling out this form makes it possible to consider that the Ministry of Education is responsible for the coverage of WSIB benefits. For students who receive salaries and are covered by their employer, filling out the form indicates that the employer is responsible for WSIA coverage. Headteachers must use a separate WEA form for each student.

Under the WSIA, workers who have suffered workplace injuries or who have contracted an illness are entitled to benefits such as. B compensation for their loss of income and permanent disabilities, as well as for health care and rehabilitation. For more information on these benefits, please visit the WSIB website. If medical treatment is requested by a doctor beyond first aid or if the injury or illness results in a loss of time for the internship, the school principal`s representative must send a report (as shown below). Since accident registration procedures require students` social security numbers, it is recommended that all students participating in vocational training or experiential learning programs in which the student is considered a worker have a
