WSIB Health & Safety Excellence Program

Excellence in Manufacturing is proud to be one of the approved providers of the new Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) Health and Safety Excellence program.

The purpose of the health & safety program is to guide employers to develop and implement (with rebates and recognition) appropriate health and safety topics, which are part of a broader health and safety management system.

The new program provides options for companies to choose how many topics (from the list of 36) they would like to work on each year, from one to a maximum of five.  This encourages those companies just starting out to take a bite sized approach to Health & Safety yet allowing those who already have a system in place to continue their journey.

As a provider EMC aids companies by providing:

  • Access to health and safety resources,
  • Orientation training,
  • On-site visit from EMC Health & Safety Professionals to provide coaching and guidance to ensure program requirements are being met,
  • On-line and telephone support,
  • Support in documentation development,
  • Desk audit review of program requirements,
  • Members’ community website with a wealth of resources, tools and templates.

Visit our website for more information about EMC’s Program offering.

Firms who complete the entire Health & Safety Excellence program should be in a position to receive accreditation of occupational health & safety management systems by the Chief Prevention Officer.
