Safety Groups

Safety Groups is a program administered by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). Companies join a Safety Group to share best safety practices, pool their experience, and help one another with their prevention programs. Each member firm works to achieve specific objectives and improve safety performance.

In return, the WSIB treats each Safety Group as one large firm and applies an experience-rating formula to the group's performance. If the group as a whole achieves a pre-set number of objectives, the WSIB rewards the group with rebates on top of the member firms' usual experience-rating assessment. There are no penalties if the group doesn't succeed.

It doesn't matter whether your company is large or small, with good safety performance or poor performance. What matters is your commitment to improve. For more information, download the WSIB's Safety Groups Brochure
