WSIB launched awards for small businesses through the Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Awards.
According to WSIB, “to keep operating safely, small businesses owners have had to adapt quickly, put workplace health and safety first, and find new and creative ways to improve how they do things.”
The annual awards “recognize and applaud all of the efforts made by small businesses to keep their team, their customers and their communities safe – whether it’s small steps or big changes.”
Applications for the Small Business Health and Safety Leadership Awards are open until July 9. Small business leaders in Ontario with fewer than 50 employees are encouraged to apply and share their health and safety success story from last year and the steps they took to make their workplaces safer.
The top three businesses will win a cash prize: $5,000 (gold), $3,000 (silver), and $2,000 (bronze), plus recognition at a ceremony in November. The first-place winner will feature in a promotional video that will be shared on WSIB’s website and across social media.
