OHS Insider Month in Review – October 2017: Northwest Territories



Workers’ Compensation
Oct.10: There are 2 things you can now do to your WSCC website account that you couldn’t do before:

  • Set up preauthorized recurring payments to process amounts owed automatically so you don’t get hit with late penalties
  • Update the name, billing address and contact information listed.

Post-Traumatic Stress
Oct.: The WSCC is thinking about changing its coverage rules for post-traumatic stress and other psychiatric and psychological disorders. Under current policy (Policy 03.09), which hasn’t changed since 2003, disorders caused by mental stress are covered only if they’re in response to a single sudden and unexpected traumatic event or series of traumatic events at work. Deadline to comment: Oct. 25.
