WSIB Excellence Program
Why Every Ontario Employer Should Participate in the WSIB Excellence Program?
Workplace injuries affect all business sectors, it’s not only in the high-risk industries such as construction and manufacturing. In 2018, the WSIB reported that 74 people lost their lives at work and accepted over 64,000 claims related to time off work as a result of a workplace injury or disease.
What is the WSIB Excellence Program?
In Ontario, the newly launched Excellence program changes how WSIB works with employers to instill a company-wide culture of health and safety in order to develop a safer and prosperous province.
The goal of this program is to reward its safest employers and make available up to $250,0000 in rebates on an annual basis, with restrictions, to each of the current 300,000+ Ontario employers. This incentive-based program is the first of its kind in Canada, replacing Safety Group, SCAP programs previously in place. The program makes available $140 million is premium savings to Ontario employers.
