Sept. 25: Comment on Plantar Fasciitis Policy
The Occupational Disease Recognition Regulation recognizes plantar fasciitis as an occupational disease, with no presumption of work causation. But there’s currently no policy on plantar fasciitis or the recognition of any risk factors. The WorkSafeBC Board approved the release of a review of the medical and scientific literature to determine whether policy on plantar fasciitis should be created. Stakeholders can review the discussion paper and proposed options and provide feedback by Nov. 14, 2014.
