Wellington, P.E.I. - Workers Compensation Board of P.E.I. (WCB) encourages business owners, senior level managers, human resource and safety advisors to attend a Lunch and Learn on the theme “$afe Business, $mart Business.”
Lori Wakelin, the board’s health and safety consultant, will deliver the one-hour session on Jan. 31. She will cover how WCB rates are set, how claims affect rates, and the importance of having a good occupational health and safety program, as well as a return to work program.
“Using two key principles, promoting workplace safety and returning injured workers back to work as soon as safely possible, you can help your business reduce your Workers Compensation claim costs,” said Wakelin.
The session, delivered in English, is organized in collaboration with the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of P.E.I. and the Wellington Rural Action Centre.
A registration fee of $5 is required for chamber members and $10 for non-members, which will cover both the session and lunch provided.
The Lunch and Learn will take place at the Wellington Rural Action Centre on Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 12 p.m.
Those interested must register no later than Friday, Jan. 26, by contacting Josée Ouellette at 902-854-3439, Ext. 228, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
