The WSIB’s Health and Safety Excellence Program (HSEp) is Ontario’s only rebate program for Health and Safety. It provides a roadmap for businesses of all sizes to improve workplace Health and Safety. Whether you are getting started or need to enhance your existing program, HSEp is designed to meet your needs.

With the successful implementation of 1 to 5 program topics, you are eligible to receive financial and non-financial rewards from the WSIB. Success in the program can earn you rebates and other non-financial recognition for your investment in Health and Safety. The program connects businesses of all sizes to help you develop a program that is suitable for your business. For over 20 years, EMC has offered the WSIB recognition program to Ontario Manufacturers. We are a WSIB-approved HSEp provider that will help you along the journey to Health and Safety excellence.

Annual enrolment fee: $995 for EMC members / $1295 for Non-Members

How the program works:

Join - EMC is your WSIB-approved training provider. Our health and safety professionals will work with you to help determine where your journey to Health and Safety excellence will start.

Develop - implement topics with the help of EMC and fellow manufacturers.

Demonstrate - submit evidence of topic completion for review by EMC and then a WSIB validator.

Achieve - receive financial and non-financial rewards for the work you do to make your workplace and Ontario safer.
