WSIB Health and Safety Excellence Program (HSEp)

About The Excellence Program

The WSIB Health & Safety Excellence is a WSIB program in Ontario that helps all companies manage a system for health and safety in their workplace. This is accomplished through mentoring, from a WSIB approved provider such as the team at Safety Training and Consulting Services Ltd. (STC).Those enrolled in this program will be in line for WSIB rebates on their premium and/or accreditation for submissions of policies, procedures and protocols with demonstration that these safety best practices are happening on the job site and/or in the workplace.

Safety Training and Consulting Services Ltd. serves a variety of sectors with a focus on residential and commercial building trades, subcontractors from small to large businesses, manufacturing, industrial and franchise enterprises. Our program is comprised of those in agriculture, construction, industrial/manufacturing, retail, food service, automotive, transportation, municipal services, and more.

What is the Program

WSIB Health & Safety Excellence Program recognizes an Employer’s and its team’s efforts in safety. This new program integrates the strengths and best parts of the previous WSIB programs and is now the only rebate program offered and the first time badge recognition program. This new model provides a clear road map for Ontario businesses to improve health and safety and achieve recognition at the same time for doing what they are already mandated to do for the MLTSD, ESA and WSIB Safety Compliance. Whether you are just getting started or want to optimize and build on and expand systems and processes you already have in place, ask us how the program can benefit you.
