To help increase predictability in our systems, the Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) is implementing service standards that specifically address the timeliness of decision making and the services that the Board provides to Yukoners.
Service standards are a public commitment to a measurable level of performance that clients can expect under normal circumstances.
They help clarify service expectations and help ensure accountability for service performance from both a provider and client perspective.
We recommend that you call in advance to book an appointment to ensure your service request can be attended to effectively and efficiently.
We will do our best to accommodate clients walking into the office without an appointment.
