WSIB Health and Safety Excellence program

Working together to create safer workplaces.

WSIB HSEp Overview

Launched in 2020 the WSIB Health & Safety Excellence program (HSEp) recognizes an Employer's and workplace's efforts in safety. This new program integrates the strengths of the previous WSIB Safety Groups, and Workwell programs. The HSEp model provides a clear road map for Ontario businesses to improve their occupational health and safety programs while achieving WSIB recognition. The end goal is to help make Ontario a healthier and safer place to work.
