Saskatchewan Opposition presents bill to cover PTSD in emergency workers
REGINA – Paramedics, firefighters and their emergency vehicles were positioned in front of the Saskatchewan legislature last week in support of an Opposition bill.
The bill presented by health critic Danielle Chartier would bring about presumptive occupational coverage for workers affected by post-traumatic stress disorder because of an incident on the job.
The bill would also affected members of the military, police and social workers.
Chartier said right now there are a lot of hoops to jump through to prove that traumatic events at work were what caused the PTSD, so this bill would mean presumed coverage from the Workers Compensation Board.
