Safety Group




What is a Safety Group Program?

A Safety Group Program, funded by the WSIB, guides employers in the integration of health and safety into their management systems. The program includes a structured learning and networking approach for sustainable results. The objective of a Safety Group is to bring similar organizations together to develop better health and safety practices and policies.

Safety Group Programs are eligible for a rebate after successful completion of the program. Last year, HHCA Safety Group participants shared in a rebate of just under $1.6M!
