Work Disability Management System Standard for Paramedic Service Organizations: Managing Disabilities associated with Operational Stress Injuries
In this webinar, we present requirements of the new CSA Standard work disability management (WDM) system, based on evidence-informed best practices. The objective of this Standard is to provide requirements and guidance on how to effectively manage the health needs of workers in the paramedic service organization (PSO) to minimize the possibility or impact of work disability, as well as onboard workers, specifically paramedics, with disabilities. A focus is given towards prevention and the management of work disability related to operational stress injuries (OSI) and other mental health and well-being conditions. In this webinar, panelists discuss their experience and perspectives on managing disabilities associated with OSI.
