Health and Safety Excellence program

In brief

  • The Health and Safety Excellence (HSE) program was recently introduced by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario (WSIB) to help Ontario firms improve workplace health and safety.
  • The emphasis of the HSE program is to develop a comprehensive occupational health and safety management system based on best practices in health and safety.
  • We are conducting an evaluation of the HSE program to assess program effectiveness, by looking at changes in participating firms’ health and safety practices and collecting baseline information to assess longer-term impacts on health and safety outcomes.

Next steps

  • We are currently conducting key informant interviews with individuals most responsible for occupational health and safety among participating firms. The purpose of the interviews is to help us better understand specific changes and investments that firms have made due to HSE participation, and to identify what helps or hinders firms’ success in the program. To participate in an interview as a key informant please contact Suhail Marino.
