Injuries caused by overexertion during accustomed work

WorkSafeBC’s Policy, Regulation and Research Division is releasing a discussion paper to stakeholders for comment. The paper includes options on proposed policy regarding injuries caused by overexertion during accustomed (familiar) work.

At issue is whether policy should be amended to add guidance for injuries caused by overexertion during the performance of accustomed work duties. The proposed policy amendments codify best practices.
