Concerns have been expressed about students participating in internships where they may be exposed to infectious diseases. These work environments include, among others, hospitals, laboratories, dental practices, ambulance services, veterinary services and nursing homes. These work environments are not consistent when it comes to requiring vaccinations against various diseases. In addition, TB testing requirements for people working in a number of work environments may not be consistent. 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. 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.
The total number of reported placement hours should be based on the cumulative data of all participating students. It is important that the reported hours are the actual hours when a student was on an internship. The Education Act states that “the Minister of Education may impose the conditions under which and under what conditions board students are considered workers for the purposes of the insurance plan established by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act of 1997 and that it considers students to be workers for these purposes and requires a board of directors to reimburse Ontario`s payments under the insurance plan for such a student. “I`m not 1 A student who applies to this right.” an injury or illness, albeit a minor one, during the placement component of an employment or experience learning program, must report the injury or illness to the trainee employer and the competent teacher with complete information, including the exact time, place and circumstances in which the injury or illness was sustained.
