Application deadline extended to May 21, 2019
We know that many small business owners work hard to keep the people who work for them healthy and safe. We are shining a light on small business leaders who make their workplaces healthier and safer – and who can inspire their peers by example. Our Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Awards recognize outstanding health and safety programs in small businesses with fewer than 50 employees.
Submit an application for your own business or one in your community or association. Tell us about your health and safety practices, how you do inspections, deal with hazards and support employees to return to work.
The top three businesses will receive a cash prize - $5,000 (gold), $3,000 (silver), $2,000 (bronze) - and be recognized at the WSIB Annual General Meeting. The first place winner will also be featured in a promotional video on the WSIB website.
Read the Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Award Guidelines to find out if you qualify and to learn about the application process.
