In this webinar, the new CSA Standard, entitled the CSA Z1011.1 Work Disability Management in the Paramedic Service Organization, that sets out the requirements for a work disability management (WDM) system based on evidence-informed best practices, will be discussed in relation to the role of key stakeholders.
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.
