For more information on the health, safety and well-being of students participating in vocational training or apprenticeship programs, visit school principals, which are available in Classes 11 and 12, 2018, in the Ontario Program, Grades 11 and 12: Cooperative Education, 2018. A student who suffers from an injury or illness that suffers injury or illness during the employment or education component of the job or experience component during the placement or experience component must report the injury or illness to the employer and teacher concerned with all the details, including the exact time, location and circumstances in which the illness was sustained. A work-related injury or illness that requires only first aid treatment should not be reported to the WSIB, but a recording of the details must be kept by the school`s management. The WEA form must be completed for all students who are taking vocational training or experimental apprenticeship programs. For students who do not receive a salary or who are not covered by their employer, filling out this form makes it possible to consider that the Ministry of Education is responsible for the coverage of WSIB benefits. For students who receive salaries and are covered by their employer, filling out the form indicates that the employer is responsible for WSIA coverage. Headteachers must use a separate WEA form for each student. In the event of injury or illness in the workplace requiring medical attention by a physician and/or resulting in job losses, the school principal`s representative must submit the WSIB Employer Injury/Illness Report (Form 7) the WSIB Employer Injury/Illness Report (Form 7). The form must be submitted to the school within three (3) working days following notification of injury or illness and received by the WSIB within seven (7) working days following the student`s report to school. The school principal representative must also provide a copy of the WEA form when the school principal`s representative reports the WSIB injury or illness. The Form 7 report and a copy of the WEA form are also sent to the ministry and the student.
If students receive salaries, vocational training or experience-learning programs, the mediator is considered an employer under the WSIA and is responsible for providing WSIA coverage. For these students, a WEA form must be completed and headteachers must indicate in the appropriate section of the form that it is the employer, not the department, that provides WSIA coverage. In all types of vocational training programs, local businesses and agencies work with headteachers to provide students with broad learning opportunities.
