HSA calls on province to expand WorkSafe coverage

 HSA is calling on the province to expand presumptive coverage to community social service and health care workers.

When a worker receives a formal diagnosis for a mental health disorder (such as PTSD)  as a result of a work-related traumatic event or events, the presumptive clause is intended to make it easier to advance a Workers Compensation claim. We know that the faster someone receives help, the faster the recovery, the faster they are back at work.

To send an email to the minister of labour and your MLA, visit hsabc.org/coverage.
