    • The WSIB has a new health and safety program that integrates the strengths of their three previous programs into one.
    • The new program provides a clear roadmap for businesses to improve workplace safety, whether they are just getting started or want to optimize systems and processes they already have in place.
    • Businesses that are successful in the program will earn rebates and other non-financial recognition for their investment in health and safety.
    • The rebate structure for the new health and safety program is based on a business’s ability to impact their rate, in line with our new premium rate-setting model. Businesses with less ability to impact their rates will receive a higher rebate. Businesses with more ability to impact their rates will receive a lower rebate.
