Students participating in work pedagogy or experiential learning programs must be at least fourteen years of age. Before a student is placed with an employer, school boards must decide whether the student is covered by the Ministry of Education or the placement employer for Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (FASF) benefits. In most cases, coverage for these students is provided by the Ministry, but school authorities, with the support of placement employers, must ensure that CSASAT requirements are properly met before and during internships. The School Work Experience Agreement form includes a risk assessment section, but if a more detailed risk assessment is required, a project risk assessment form is available on the School of Creative Arts ` (StudyNet) departmental website. If a physician requires medical treatment beyond first aid, or if the injury or illness results in a loss of time during the practicum, the school board representative must send a report (as outlined below) to the FASC. Since accident reporting procedures require students` Social Security numbers, it is recommended that all students involved in vocational training or expercable learning programs where the student is considered an employee have a Social Security number. Note that if the investment employer is one of the few types of companies that do not need to enroll in WSIA coverage, e.B. a bank2, the student is still covered by the WSIA, as the student is considered an employee of the department for this purpose. A weA form must also be completed for these students. If students receive a salary when participating in vocational training or expercable learning programs, the placement employer is considered an employer under the WSIA and is responsible for providing WSIA coverage.
For these students, a WEA form must be completed and the school authorities must indicate in the appropriate section of the form that it is the employer, not the ministry, that provides WSIA coverage. This memorandum instructs school authorities and schools regarding coverage under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997 (WSIA) for students, including adult learners, who participate in various on-the-job training programs (also known as experiential learning programs) where the student is considered an employee. .
