RTW COR Update December 2, 2013
As you may recall, WorkSafeBC determined that RTW COR was frozen effective January 1, 2013.
The Certifying Partners met with WorkSafeBC on November 28, 2013. Here is the information that we are able to share with our members and naturally-aligned organizations:
- The RTW COR Program remains frozen, and there will be no new RTW certifications in 2014. Employers that are currently participating in the RTW COR Program may continue to use the existing audit tool for 2014, for maintenance and recertification audits.
- WorkSafeBC, in consultation with key stakeholders, is drafting a new “Work Disability Prevention” (WDP) Standard. There is a goal for this new WDP Standard to lead to the development of an associated WDP Audit protocol and for a reintroduction to the COR Program in 2015; however, the decision to “unfreeze” COR RTW will only be made when WorkSafeBC is satisfied that the new WDP Standards will result in positive and measureable outcomes.
