General Information

The Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) provides return to work services and programs to an injured worker; the goal of which is to safely return the worker to employment or employability that is comparable to the pre-injury level and is functionally appropriate during recovery. For the return to work process to be successful there must be ongoing co-operation, commitment and communication between the employer, worker, YWCHSB, and health care providers.
