Construction-bred

Blue Collar knows the realities of construction: the pressure to deliver, to keep costs low, to finish on budget, to roll with the punches in a race against time. Our consultancy is built to help you cope with these demands.

Our resume includes senior-level management experience in Civil, Energy, Commercial, & Residential construction. We also know the WCB and how its policies specifically impact the construction sector.

Our consultants hold an advanced designation in disability management from the University of Fredericton and Millard Health, as well as being certified by the American Petroleum Institute and the Canadian Welding Bureau.

MOVING THE CHAINS

In sport as in business, success requires determination, teamwork, and a sound strategy. On the corporate gridiron, an expanding bureaucracy, economic challenges, and less-obvious threats like WCB uncertainties stand between you and the goal line.

Blue Collar’s assignment on your team is largely defensive in nature; that is, to protect against bureaucratic blitzes, boost your profits, and give you space to focus on more strategic matters. As a member of your team, BCC plays a specialized but crucial role.

MOUNTING OBLIGATIONS

More than ever, employers are required to accommodate, reinstate, & care for disabled workers. These obligations apply both to physical and mental disablement.

Courts and Commissions have increased the sum of damages awarded to people mentally injured at work by some 900% in recent years. Unfortunately, many employers will remain unaware of these legal requirements until confronted with a WCB claim, lawsuit, or complaint brought against them. BCC helps manage these risks.

COLLABORATIVE APPROACH

Your experience with WCB depends on the particular case worker assigned to a claim, their interpretation of policy and procedure, respective caseload, experience level, as well as current knowledge of changing legislation.

To control for these variables, we combine knowledge of workers’ comp policy with a creative and diplomatic approach to Board interaction. This collaborative strategy aims for consensus and reduces the role of chance and variability in claim outcomes.
