Now, there is something I feel you need to know about.
Here is a link to a cbc.ca article entitled, WSIB reverses previous denial of claims from K-W rubber workers: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kitchener-waterloo/wsib-rubber-industry-claims-approved-1.5312387?utm_source=WHSCtraining&utm_medium=(none)&fbclid=IwAR0Y-5jgHROsD0vRMn1bCzBkwlyKlWQESgM1OluQNXN6FRz4zxxcm8namwk.
If you didn't click on the link to read the article, here is what the article stated (I copied/pasted):
A Workplace Safety Insurance Board (WSIB) review has allowed compensation claims of 31 rubber workers from Kitchener-Waterloo that were previously denied.
A dedicated review team, created by the WSIB last year, looked at 300 claims received between 2002 and 2017.
The reviewers upheld the denial of 253 of those claims. "An additional 24 claims are currently in an appeals process," a statement from the board said Monday.
In the 15 year window, workers from several rubber companies made claims regarding a litany of illnesses, including cancers.
The review considered updated scientific research.
In statement, the WSIB highlighted a review of occupational cancers announced by the provincial government at the start of this year. Noting that recommendations resulting from the review "would impact decisions made on cancer-related claims."
Since the review began, 174 additional claims have been filed and are proceeding through the WSIB processes.Wow!
To me, it was terrible that Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), didn't accept all those claims.
If those people were injured/hurt at work, then their applications should have been accepted.
After all, WSIB should have supported those workers.
Thinking of that made me think of Acts 20:35, "I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.".
Amen! I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Please join me in prayer for injured workers.
Please join me in prayer that WSIB will support and help every injured worker.
Thank you for praying.
May God bless you!
Until next time...
