In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Return to Work Program Services is facilitating the WCB Basics workshop in a live virtual training format. The sessions will take place through the WebEx platform in a virtual instructor-led workshop.

WebEx is the online platform used to support WCB Virtual Workshops. WebEx is not supported by iPhone, iPad and Android. For best results, use a Chrome Browser on a laptop or desktop computer.

Participants enrolled will be in the same virtual classroom at the same time. Facilitators will be verifying attendance and using confirmation of learning tools such as polls, breakout rooms, and quizzes to confirm learning and encourage participation.

The WCB Basics workshop is divided into six modules over a day and a half of online learning. To obtain a certificate of completion, all six modules must be successfully completed. Space is limited to a maximum of 12 participants to ensure quality interaction.

Day 1 – 12:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Day 2 – 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Please view the calendar below and register online. Once registered, you will be sent virtual access information and be invited to a test login session to ensure that you are able to properly access the WebEx learning platform prior to your scheduled workshop.

Arrangements can be made for worksite-specific virtual training with a minimum of eight participants. For more information, contact us at RTWProgramServices@wcb.mb.ca or 204-954-4662.

An effective return to work program can help injured workers and their workplaces recover more quickly.

Building on what you learned in WCB Basics, the Return to Work Basics workshop will help you gain an understanding of the basic components and best practices to develop or enhance your workplace return to work program. We will demonstrate how an effective return to work program supports injured workers in their return to meaningful work.

Employers will also learn:

  • how to save money by developing a return to work program that could decrease your WCB premiums and extended health coverage costs
  • how to reduce productivity loss to stay more competitive in your industry
  • how to attract and retain good employees by becoming "an employer of choice."
