Proposed policy amendments regarding injuries caused by overexertion during accustomed work
Our Policy, Regulation and Research Division is releasing a discussion paper to stakeholders for comment. The paper includes options on proposed policy regarding injuries caused by overexertion during accustomed (familiar) work.
At issue is whether policy should be amended to add guidance for injuries caused by overexertion during the performance of accustomed work duties. The proposed policy amendments codify best practices.
Proposed deletions of policy wording are identified with a
strikethrough and additions are identified in bold.
There are a number of ways for stakeholders to provide feedback on the options and draft policy amendments:
