Business and Safety Professionals are ACTIVELY seeking new ways to Manage and Appeal WCB Claims
Companies are spending thousands of dollars on prevention of workplace injuries.
Yet when a Workplace injury does occur, it’s how you react to it that often dictates how much this WCB claim affects the company. Without the ability to efficiently manage WCB claims…companies all across North America suffer.
What can YOU do?
The fact is most employers have someone internally to handle their claims. However, this person may not have the knowledge to manage the claim properly. They are often an H.R. Person, Office Administrator, Safety Person, or Manager/Supervisor. Things get even more complicated when you consider that most companies only have one or two claims a year.
Time is wasted due to inefficient management of the claim…
The wrong questions are asked…
Confusion and uncertainty wear down trust…
Frustration leads to mistakes…
However, when you understand the principles of WCB claims management and appeals, this all gets resolved.
What about hiring a consultant?
Especially if this is a claim that is rubbing people within the company the wrong way.
We are a consulting firm. We represent employers only. Companies will call us to do the investigations, submit the paperwork and guide the business through the WCB journey. If this is something you’re looking for, then reach out to us and let us know.

Allow me to introduce myself
After working in WCB for 5 years, WCBconsulting.ca officially started in 2012. However, it began in 2011 after a series of friends approached me for help with their company’s WCB claims. This quickly turned into helping friends that owned businesses and safety professionals managing or appealing their WCB claims.
I was also coaching football and slowly worked my way to the Canadian Football League (CFL).
After years of managing claims and taking various “claims management” courses I noticed a major gap in the quality of information taught to those that need it most.
As a professional coach and WCB expert, it’s my belief that:
“If you give people good information, they make choices and can handle any situation.”
Then things REALLY changed for me
For years now, I’ve made it my goal to become an expert in WCB and Industry Safety Classifications.
My focus is on understanding how WCB was making their decisions, and how this changed between different jurisdictions, industries, and even economic times. I quickly saw the pitfalls that many professionals faced when it came to WCB claims.
I knew that these are people like me, only they didn’t have time to find this out for themselves, and worse yet, even if they did, they didn’t know who to call for the information.
Which is why I created the online courses and personal coaching you see today.
Since 2011, WCBConsulting.ca has saved Canadian companies over $12 MILLION in Workers’ Compensation premiums and rebates
After representing employers all these years and successfully reducing their premiums, increasing rebates, and helping them bid hundreds of millions in work, I have decided to add another component:
Online E-Learning for WCB Claims Management Courses
The reason for this online WCB courses is simple.
More and more businesses and safety professionals are looking for ways to spend less money but do more with it. They assign someone in the company to manage a WCB claim. Maybe that someone is you reading this now. That person isn’t specialized in WCB, but they want to do a good job.
Where then are the tools to help these people?
Yes, WCB does their seminars. Associations have courses. I’ve sat in all of them. Including 2 years of University in Disability Management.
In my drive to become an expert in the field of Workers Compensation, I realized where the gaps were. Where all of these things fell short in helping Canadian Small and Medium Sized Business succeed in WCB / WSIB / Worksafe claims.
If you’ve been managing claims for a while, or just now getting into it…for whatever the reason. You came to the right place.
No where else can you find a:

What About WCB APPEALS?
What Goes on in the WCB Appeals Course?

The appeals course is designed to help you increase your chances for a successful outcome regardless of who started it.
You might be asking yourself “increase my chances?”
Yes, that’s correct.
When it comes to WCB, NO ONE can guarantee an outcome for you.

While providing them comfort knowing what their options are when it comes to managing or appealing a claim
