TORONTO — The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is introducing a new recognition program called the Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Awards, its first award program specifically for small businesses in Ontario.
The awards will recognize outstanding achievement in health and safety initiatives in businesses with fewer than 50 employees. The top three winners will receive cash prizes for their excellence in health and safety efforts.
First place is $5,000, second place is $3,000 and third place is $2,000.
The WSIB wants to know about your safety culture, how you conduct inspections and deal with hazards and how you support workers to return to work.
Nominations close June 30. Visit www.wsib.on.ca for more information.
