Modernization of the Workers’ Compensation Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act
On behalf of the Government of Yukon, Yukon Workers’ Compensation Health and Safety Board (YWCHSB) carried out a public engagement in late 2019 and early 2020 to hear from stakeholders and the public about the modernization and amalgamation of the Workers’ Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Act into the newly formed Workplace Safety and Compensation Act.
Throughout the engagement, we offered ways for members of the public and stakeholders to contribute to the development of legislation that meets the needs of Yukon’s workers and employers now and into the future.
Public engagement on changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations
The public engagement on changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations took place in 2019. We have summarized the information we received in a What We Heard report, which is available in English and in French.
