The Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA) in Ontario, Canada, is designed to ensure workplace safety, offer financial protection for injured workers, and establish a system where compensation is provided regardless of fault. It covers lost wages, medical treatment, rehabilitation, pensions, and travel expenses. WSIA outlines rights and responsibilities for employees and employers, emphasizing prompt reporting, cooperation, and maintaining safe work environments. Employers are encouraged to support early return-to-work plans. Overall, WSIA focuses on workplace safety, workers’ well-being, and clear obligations for all parties involved in employment. It serves as the primary avenue for addressing workplace injuries, often preventing workers covered by the act from suing their employers for such injuries.
