How It Works



Register for an upcoming info session near you to better understand the Health and Safety Excellence Program and the business case for health and safety.



Review the WSIB website and choose PSHSA as your approved provider.  Complete an assessment: you will select 1-5 health and safety topics to work on over a 12-month period.



You will then learn and implement your selected health and safety topics – the building blocks of the program – with support from PSHSA. The program’s flexible timelines allow you to work at your own pace.



Submit evidence of the work you’ve completed for review by PSHSA prior to final WSIB validation. A WSIB validator will then review your program documentation and assess if you have completed your topic(s).



Receive rebates and recognition for your health and safety performance! Financial and non-financial rewards are earned based on individual participant performance. Note that financial rebates are available for Schedule 1 firms only.
