The financial rebates from the 2010 calendar year have arrived, and WSN’s Safety Groups members will split a total of $535,208.13 in WSIB rebates amongst the 50 participating firms.
The long running program not only provides members with financial incentives for achieving health and safety goals, but WSN Safety Group members’ continually record significantly lower lost-time frequency rates and lost-time severity rates than their industry’s average.
Safety Groups has evolved greatly since 2010, where the member firms were primarily from northern Ontario’s forestry industry. In 2011, the doors were opened to firms across northern Ontario, and the overwhelming success has led to the development of the Northern Ontario Safety Group for 2012.
