The occupational health and safety mandates are to be followed by the employers in different countries for effectively managing and adjusting the claims related to the worker’s compensation processes. This is also applicable in the organizations functioning in Canada in which the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) plays the main role in claim adjudication of workers compensation management (Barnetson, 2010, pp.110-120).
The workers’ compensation management process involves complex decisions and faces unique challenges with respect to claim processing and adjudication. The focus of the employers towards the health and safety of their employees plays a pivotal role in deciding the smoothness and effectiveness of the overall claim management and adjudication of the compensation systems provided for the workers. The interest of the employers is important in deciding the amount of health and safety provided to the employees. In case of any injuries and subsequent claims for compensation, the main decider of the whole claims adjudication process is the management of the organization. However, most employers prioritize the claims adjudication of the worker’s compensations so that they can maintain an ethical image of the organization among the internal and external stakeholder groups and also save the costs of legal procedures for claim processing. Mostly, the management of the organization has better control over the claim adjudication process because they have more influence on the overall compensation management system and on the legal procedures of compensation management. The Workers Compensation (WS) is an obligatory program that implies that the employers have to provide suitable benefits in case they unable to work due to an injury or illness caused bytheir work. The worker’s compensation programs in Canada are overseen by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
