Once you’ve completed your health and safety topics, it’s time to submit evidence of your work so you can earn rebates and other recognition. Your provider will help you prepare for the validation process. Our health and safety experts will review and validate your submission.
We may select a business for an onsite validation to ensure that specific health and safety topics are part of your workplace culture. This is not an audit of your entire health and safety program – it is an opportunity to receive feedback from our health and safety experts, identify best practices and get recommendations for improvement.
