Safety Group Annual Cycle

At the beginning of each year, a firm selects five safety elements that it will initiate or improve upon from the Safety Group’s Achievement List provided by the WSIB. 

Over the course of the year a firm will learn how to implement these initiatives through attending meetings, sharing ideas and pooling resources with other firms in its safety group.

At the end of the year, the group can receive a rebate based on the entire group’s success in implementing their selected Safety elements. In each subsequent year, firms are required to maintain their elements from the previous year and pick five new ones.
