Once again for International RSI Awareness Day the Toronto injured worker community is organizing a workshop to discuss issues related to repetitive strain injuries and the workplace. This year the Conference is going to follow up on the WSIB benefit policies, hear about aging and work injuries, and explore the prevailing idea that “musculoskeletal injuries are declining.” Do decreasing stats, as discussed by the Institute for Work & Health recent study, prove that MSDs are declining ? Is the decline is caused by fewer injuries or the new WSIB policies that blame injuries on age and pre-existing conditions to deny treatment to injured workers? [download flyer]
The Conference will be held at the Steelworkers’ Hall, 25 Cecil St, Toronto from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (coffee and registration at 9:30 a.m.)
